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 celebrated Cretaceous deposits of the santana Formation of Sierra de Aripe, Brazil, is a fine 19.5cm complete example of the sacrse fish Ararialepidotus tamnurus Agassiz, 1841.
Complete except for the very tips of the tail fin, this well preserved and well prepared specimen preserves the entire skull with operculum, and the entire body scales undisturbed, and replaced in white apatite. Dorsal and anal fins are also intact.............in all a fascinating legacy of Cretaceous life............at an affordable price!
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.
