Great to see it published! I saw the poster at the SVP meeting in
Bristol, and the specimen is very impressive.
Just a nomenclatural note... noun compounding in Greek and Latin is
_not_ done by putting the entire words next to each other. It's done by
putting the _stem_ of the first in front of the second. The stem of
_Tethys_ is _Tethy-_; the _-s_ is the nominative singular _ending_.
