I’m going to ask for a hint–is it from a vertebrate, invertebrate, or plant?

How old is it? October 12, 2016 at 3:31 pm #13641 Eleanor GardnerModerator @llundgren – I believe it is from the Eocene, between ~ 60-35 mya October 12, 2016 at 5:29 pm #13678 Asa KaplanParticipant That is one big Nummulites! I wonder what the record size is… October 13, 2016 at 10:23 am #13713 Eleanor GardnerModerator Correct, @asa-kaplan! The original poster, @laura-cotton, is a foram specialist who recently published on the biostratigraphy and microfossils of an Upper Eocene locality in Armenia. See page 18 for beautiful photos of Nummulites specimens! http://www.geo.uu.nl/~forth/publications/Cotton_2016_NoS.pdf Author Posts Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
