    You should probably change the estimate on the first occurrence for this species from NP14 to NP12, as I find this species consistently in NP12 (Early Eocene) material.

    Thanks - do you have a reference for that? I could put something like "Self Trail via comment" as the data source but ideally we are trying to get things properly documented.
