About the Species

This specimen, a male, was collected during the Vernay-Lang Expedition on 18 April 1930 to Damara Pan, Ghanzi, Botswana. It was made available to the University of Texas High-Resolution X-ray CT Facility for scanning by Dr. Blaire Van Valkenburgh of the University of California Los Angeles. Funding for scanning was provided by Dr. Van Valkenburgh and by a National Science Foundation Digital Libraries Initiative grant to Dr. Timothy Rowe of The University of Texas at Austin.

About this Specimen

The specimen was scanned by Philip Watson on 19 April 2006 along the horizontal axis for a total of 492 slices. Each 1024x1024 pixel slice is 0.35 mm thick, with an interslice spacing of 0.30 mm (resulting in a slice overlap of 0.05 mm) and a field of reconstruction of 268 mm.
