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 now available from China!
Offered is a fascinating nodule from the Late Permian; Lower Sakemena Formation (Lopingian) of the Morondava basin. Madagascar, preserving in fine detail, two essentially complete and articulated examples of the aquatic lizard-like reptile Barosaurus besairiei Piveteau, 1955.
The largest specimen is 20cm (along the spine); a good sized example, which shows the skull , articulated spine and ribs, both pectoral and pelvic girdles and major limb bones intact; the left forelimb has all of the carpels and metacarpels too.........these will clean and prepare further with modern air tools..
The smaller (17cm) specimen has the skull and an almost complete vertebral column, missing only part of the the tail. It is also preserved in good detail, with several complete ribs, both limb girdles and most of the bones of the fore-limbs and hind-limbs intact and largely undisturbed............again this example will clean further with air tools.
Affordable price for such a fascinating and double near-complete example; a superb legacy of late Palaeozoic life.
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.
