For finely preserved, rare and amazing fish, birds, bats and other vertebrates from this world famous MIddle Eocene site, mounted in resin matrix in the time honoured way
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 finely preserved, complete 7.8cm articulated example of the classic species Chotocops ferdinandi, from the famous locality in the Devonian Hunsruck Slates at Bundenbach, Germany.
In lateral preservation, with the right eye intact and showing good lenses, and with excellent preservation of the thorax and pygidium this is a fine, attractive and displayable example. Matrix approx. 18cm X 14cm X 0,5cm. Further preparation from the reverse of the matrix is possible too.
Affordable, very attractive and detailed example of a classic Bundenbach trilobite!!
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.
