Send me your 'wants list' for future international and UK shows or for my collecting trips in Britain:
If you are a fieldwork collector and have surplus trilobites or other Palaeozoic fossils for sale or trade, please get in touch. I buy whole collections too!
Offered is a collection of well preserved, articulated and complete 3D trilobites from the celebrated Devonian localities at Djebel Issoumour and Djebel Oufatane, Moroccan Anti-Atlas. Most will clean/prepare further:
top row: Moroccops ovatus (McKeller & Chatterton), enrolled: upper Emsian; Cheiurus (Crotalocephalina) gibbus (Beyrich), semi-prone; Pragian; Coltraneia oufatensis Morzadec,enrolled, Upper Emsian.
Bottom row: Reedops cephalotes hamlagadadianus Alberti, prone specimen, Pragian; Kettneraspis aff. pigra (Barrande), prone specimen, Eifelian. marocensis Chjatterton et. al., prone specimen, Upper Emsian. Most specimens will prepare and clean easily with modern air tools.
Great price for a well preserved collection from a classic region of Morocco.
Although I sell a very wide range of fossils from Pre- Cambrian to Pleistocene age, I specialize in trilobites from all over the globe and in particular, British species.
I collect regularly in the UK, with more than forty five years of fieldwork experience and probably the best working knowledge of British trilobite localities. I have a doctorate and a masters degree in trilobite taxonomy and British Palaeozoic stratigraphy and an Open University degree in Natural Sciences.
If you are an amateur collector, a more serious scientific collector, or an agent for an educational organization ( e.g College, University or Museum), I can supply materials to suit your needs! I also buy whole collections and trade materials too. Visits are welcome,by appointment only.
