External morphology

Size 21.5 mm x 22.3 mm. Two squared-off processes on lateral edges. Corners beveled but contain slight sine curve. Specimen found with large attached tag bearing words “MECA”

Discovered by R. Schneider in a car repair shop in Norway. It had a firm grip on a set of automobile keys. The attachment to a metallic instead of plastic host is a significant find that may link it to some of the minute archignathans found on watch dials.
