Send me your 'wants list' for future international and UK shows or for my 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!
Offered for the advanced collector is a good sized (6cm) fully articulated and complete example of the exoticLower Ordovician trilobite Harpides sp., from the Fezouata Schists, Tremadoc Series, of Bou Zarguan, NW of Zagora, Morocco.
With fine detail of the fringe pitting and occular ridges on the cephalon, both genal prolongations intact, and a complete multi-segmented thorax with the minute pygidium articulated, this is an exceptional example of a genus described originally from the early Ordovician of the Czech Republic.
This specimen has been well prepared locally in Morocco; matrix approx. 9cm X 7.5cm X 1.5cm.
Affordable price for such a fine and very complete, displayable example!
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.
