>>CK,
>>Actually, the two specimens I cited from the MVZ collection are old. The specimen from Silver Lake in Lassen county is MVZ 18187 collected in 1935 and the Morgan Springs (Ranch) specimen from Tehama County is MVZ #14946 collected before I was born in 1932.

Then obviously they overlooked the evidence. I don't know when the MVZ computerized its records, but back in the mid 1990's computer literacy was not very widespread, and the Internet was not available to the general public until the mid-1990's. Back then most people were surfing the Net with 14.4K modems.

In Lord Kelvin's case radioactivity was not discovered until half a century or so after he made his famous calculation of the age of the earth. Of course he also ignored all the geological processes which must have taken much longer than his calculations would suggest.
