The specimen was plowed up in a hillside cornfield one mile east of the Landes Post Office about 35 to 40 years prior to being called to the attention of Glenn I Huss in 1968. During most of this period it lay under the eaves of a barn where water dripped on it without apparent damage to the specimen.
