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 Ordovician trilobites from Portugal uploaded.
Offered from the Lower Ordovician, Llanvirn Series (Dariwillian) of Baoshan, Yunnan Province, China is a beautiful 3cm positive/negative example of the elegant encrinurid Sinocybele yunnanensis (Sheng 1974)
This is a good sized specimen in fine preservation and much of its original convex relief is preserved too. Both spatulate genal spines are preserved and there is some fine surface prosopon on the cephalon. The external mould shows fine pitting on the broad pygidial spines too.
Matrix pieces approx, 7.5cm X 6cm X 3cm and 7.5cm X 4cm X 3.5cm
Great price for such a fine and complete split pair of this rarity...................
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.
