CatRemarks:
The specimen was located in the old bentonite mine pit just to the east of Mount Nebo. The fossil was discovered in a Pembina shale layer immediately beneath a thick bentonite layer. Furthermore, immediately beneath the fossil-bearing shale layer, a strange rusty colored mineral was encountered in a layer of it's own. Specimen P.08.01.04 was "sandwiched" between an underlying rust-colored mineral layer and an overlying thick bentonite layer. The underlying rust-colored layer was sampled and is accessioned as R.08.01.04 The overlying bentonite was sampled and sent to National Petrographic Services Inc., in Houston, Texas in 2009 where a palynological analysis was preformed by Jeff Stein, Ph.D. The terrestrially-derived palynomorphs include the pollens "Proteacidites thalmanii" and "Betulaceoipollenites sp." The dinocysts include "Trithyrodinium suspectum", "Chatangiella ditissima", and "Dinogymnium euclaensis."
