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 (Dariwillian), Llanvirn Series of Baoshan, Yunnan, China is a beautiful example of two different Illaenid species on matrix; a fine Nanglingia sinensis (Sheng 1974; syn. Zbirovia? sinensis).
At 5.5cm this is a good sized specimen of I. caeceoides Lu et al. 1965 in fine preservation and with both librihena intac. It is complete except for the left peripheral margin of the pygidium.
The Nanglingia too is fully articulated with both librigena and the distinctive cephalic axial furrows well preserved. Much of its original convex relief preserved too.
Typical of the locality, the preserving matrix is a red blocky uydstone measuring approx, 14cm X 10cm X 3.cm.
Great price for a fine and complete pair of trilobites from this locality..................
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.
