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 from the Wenlock Series ;Homerian Stage, Coalbrookdale Formation, of Coalbrookdale, Ironbridge, Shropshire, UK is a fine 2.2cm complete and prone example of the acastomorph Acastacephala macrops (Salter 1864)
With only minor distortion to the right eye, this very displayable example is in high relief, and retains almost 100% of the original shell. Examples with good shell material are rare, as this is is usually lost in the collecting process. Matrix approx 3.5cm X 2.5cm X 1.5cm.
Excellent price for such a fine example of this localised British species, from the Formation type locality.
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.
