There was confusion about this earlier.  The FOTM candidate crab is inside the big concretion in the first photo.  Unfortunately a "normal-sized" crab of the same species was used for scale.  The crab on top of the concretion in the first photo is not the specimen that was entered into the contest.

An update on the insect I entered. I now can semi officially say it has no name. The paleo entomologist that has been looking at it says it may not only be a new species of Horntail wasp but a new genus. Nice! I'll post more later in the general forum.

Great to hear when new taxa to science are discovered. Keep us in the loop on this one when there is new information to share.

 

 

Cheers.
