Yes ofcourse, thats only problem of the type specimen.
I wanted to let everyone know to which "family" this sample belongs.
LL6, LL5, not big difference, but more accurate in that case is LL5.

Im alvays astonished how specimens of single find can show on the Morocco
market for every several months/years.
First was I think Mike's NWA2053 on 2003, then mine NWA2826 on 2004, then I
remember Andi's oriented specimen around 2005-2006, and now this one at end
of 2007.
Also I think I have seen one small sample at Munich show.
Thats never ending storry :)
