Tehamatea ovalis ( Stanton, 1895)  

( Fig. 17 View FIGURE 17 )

Material and occurrence. Four articulated and four disarticulated specimens from Eagle Creek (Late Barremian, Early Cretaceous).

Remarks. Here we illustrate a well-preserved small specimen ( CAS 73138 View Materials ) from Eagle Creek that shows the regular commarginal ribs on the external surface. Previously illustrated specimens from other Cretaceous seep deposits in California (Kiel 2013) were mostly fragmentary or internal molds.
