Dataset abstract

3d model of a plaster cast housed in the collections of the British Geological Survey in Keyworth, Nottingham. The original specimen (Bristol City Museum Cb 2335) is the holotype for the species but was destroyed in 1940. A number of other casts are known to exist. This cast is somewhat unusual in having a detachable section of rostrum, held in place by iron straps bolted to the matrix.
