    Martin Fowler has contributed specimen mFeM 59389 to myFOSSIL!

    • Good morning, @martin-fowler! Would you be interested in making this specimen research grade for the myFOSSIL eMuseum? If so, I can walk you through a few steps to get it there.

      • Hi Samantha. Certainly! Do let me know what needs to be done.

        • Wonderful! The first step would be to upload a few more photos so we can get a concept of the overall specimen – although this looks like a compression fossil, so we probably just need a few more of this side. We can also narrow down the classification of this organism. I know that @jim-barkley collects in the Green River and he may have some insight. https://paleobiodb.org/navigator/ might also be useful in narrowing down the classification.

          • Ah! The specimen is currently on loan to Dr Viktor Baranov at the University of Munich as he has offered to try and identify the insect. Maybe we should wait until I hear back from him with his opinion and get the specimen back so that I can take some more photos?
