description. A series of illustrations depicting the newly described heterodont odontocetus from the Oligocene Pysht formation in Washington state USA. Illustrations were commissioned by the Associate Curator of Marine Mammalogy for the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum Jorge Velez- Juarbe, to accompany his recently published paper describing the species. Included are some of the pathfinding illustrations I made attempting to reconstruct the skull and dentary, which were damaged.
