Although computer images and other evidence strongly suggested that the new surface met the criteria for placing it, alongside the helicoid and the plane, in the minimal-surface hall of fame, that wasn't enough for mathematicians.

For centuries, the helicoid has been the only known example of a so-called "complete embedded minimal surface of finite topology with infinite total curvature.
This feature, which looks like a hole in the fundamental helicoid shape, makes the new surface topologically equivalent to a punctured sphere equipped with a handle -- just like the one that sprouts from a mug.
