    @jbauer and @samantha-ocon – Forgot to mention that Dr. Laura Cotton had ID this foram as a possible Lepidocyclinid with a serpulid worm tube on top of the test.

    Excellent, I will update the information for the new entry fields – I always like collecting foraminifera with unusual or pathological features. Thank you @jbauer and @samantha-ocon.

    These are the front or hind foot bones from a three-toed horse (Mesohippus sp.) collected in northwestern Nebraska on private ranch – approximately 20 miles north Crawford. The bones were a surface find and I was unable to find additional three-toed horse bones associated with these foot bones in the nearby area. Oligocene – lower Brule formation. I contacted Dr. MacFadden (The Fossil Horses Forum) to see if he could determine if these were from the front or hind foot, but since the diagnostic wrist or ankle bones were missing, he stated that it would be difficult to tell for sure. Dr. MacFadden did provide an excellent reference publication for the placement of the sesamoids bones.
    myFOSSIL site and the Florida Museum of Natural History have always been very helpful in sharing their knowledge of paleontology and I appreciate that, Thanks

    • That’s awesome! I’ve always been interested in horse evolution but haven’t dove into the literature too much on it to get more familiar with the anatomy. Thank you so much for sharing. @bmacfadden is definitely the horse expert and filled with excellent knowledge.

    Added a image with a mm scale and updated information for this shell – Thank you for the link to iDigBio – added to my

    • Excellent! Thanks, Joseph! The iDigBio portal takes some getting used to but is a really powerful tool; I use it regularly for casual learning and for research questions.

    • Hi, @joseph-dumont, excellent specimen! I agree that gastropod coloration pattern is a really interesting thing to think about. Would you be interested in adding in the higher order classification and maybe an image with a scale so I could validate your measurements? Specimens that meet certain requirements will be submitted to a data aggregator so that other interested parties can know about your specimen.

      For classification help I start with the iDigBio portal (many museum specimen records): https://www.idigbio.org/portal/records/1ce8ee83-73dd-4b39-998c-f3c019f00747
