of the type specimen of Tupus permianus Sellards 1906
Last Updated 11 February 2002
Thanks to Dr. Chris Durden, Curator at the Texas Memorial Museum, for
allowing me to work in the fossil insect collection during July, 2001.
Many of Sellards' specimens from the Elmo, Kansas deposits are in this
collection. Chris has assembled an extraordinary variety of fossil insect
specimens, from many geological areas of North America, that together comprise a
quite valuable resource.
