Offered is an unusual well preserved and essentially complete 6cm example of the Branchiosaur Amphibian Branchiosaurus petrolei, from the Lower permian marl slates of Niederkirchen, Germany.
Dorso-ventrally preserved, the bones are replaced with a white mineral (apatite?) which contrasts well with the dark grey matrix; the skull is well dfetailed and shows the orbits and both upper and lower mandibles; the vertebral column, with ribs anteriorly, is intact and both both delicate pelvic and pectoral girdles are preserved with associated limb bones................in all a fascinating legacy of early Permian colinization of land.
Matrix approx. 15cm X 10cm X 0.5cm.

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.
