Cataloguer:
Joseph Hatcher
CatRemarks:
Specimen is assumed by the cataloguer to be from the Millwood Member of the Pierre Shale, based on the dark color of the fossil preservation and the cataloguer's personal field experience observing Millwood-style preservation. The specimen was a recorded as a surface find, and the property is known to be geologically mixed by machine activity during the 1970's and 80's when it was an active bentonite mine which was later rehabilitated.
