recall, Rod. I want to say that this fellow wasn’t buried especially deep. I know that’s not especially helpful, but I really can’t say much. With some luck, I’ll encounter this taxon again in the coming months.

This taxon has the unusual penetratrix 5’ terminal (“left hand end”) motif.

The sequences are some what fragmented. More soon (I hope).

Very best,
