C.D.W and J.S.A prepared a latex peel of NSM 017.GF.017.001 using Baird’s31 method. C.D.W photographed NSM 017.GF.017.001 and its peel with a Nikon D200 DSLR and a standard optical lens. C.D.W produced a composite high-resolution image of the specimen (Fig. 3) and the latex peel (Supplementary Figure S1) using the automate function in Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 (Adobe.com). Other figures were drawn using Adobe Illustrator CC 2018 (Adobe.com).
