How to View Stereo Images
- Nickname: Pinky
- Collected: Site P, Leiper's shale, Huntsville, by Don Williams
- Dimensions: scale bar is .5 mm
- Comments: Microscopic Stereo views. Element was found intact enbedded in limestone, but broke in the middle while being extracted using 10% acetic acid. "From the photo it appears to be the cordylodiform element of Oulodus oregonia oregonia (Branson, Mehl, and Branson). The occurrence in the Leipers Limestone would mean that it may be the subspecies Oulodus oregonia velicuspis (Pulse and Sweet) which is limited to the upper Edenian and lower Maysvillian. You may find more information on this species in Bergstrom and Sweet (1966) and Kohut and Sweet (1968)." -- communication from Dorothy Raymond Geologist, Geological Survey of Alabama.
