Send me your 'wants list' for future international and UK shows or for my fossil 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!
New high quality, value for money Kiechiosaurs and new Ordovician and Cambrian trilobites now available from China and Devonian armoured fish from Ukraine!
Offered is an unusually complete and relatively undamaged example of the Upper Siluirian (Ludlovian) eurypterid Balteurypterus tetragonopthalmus, from the River Kamianets, Poldisky, Khmelnyski Oblast, Ukraine.
At 6.5cm, this is a subadult example that is essentially complete and articulated, showing good shell material preservedoverall andwith both eyes intact. The complete right paddle is undamaged and at least one cephalic walking appendage is complete; others may be revealed with preparation. The thoracic somites are articulated and the telson spine is complete except for the very tip. One obvious diagonal repair across rthorax, but this does not distract from the overall aesthetic appeal of the specimen.
In all a fascinating legacy of Upper Silurian life..............matrix approx 9.5cm X 8.5cm X 3cm.
Affordable price for a near-complete and very displayable example of this elegant species in sharp preservation.,.
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.
