    A New species of insect from the Pennsylvanian of Alabama was just described last week. The specimen was originally found by Don Blakely, a volunteer at the Cahaba Living River Retreat, who found the wing in a rock being used to mark a trail. He donated the specimen to the Alabama Museum of Natural History, and researchers named the new species in his honor!

    I am interested in doing some hunting in the Pottsville formation in northeast Alabama. While I have found information about the formation itself I have not found any good location information.   Any help would be appreciated.

    We live in northwest Georgia so I think it may be fairly close to us. Thanks!

    Is it a new species?
