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 is a superbly detailed, complete and well preserved example of the Lower Cretaceous (Aptian) frog Genibatrachus baoshanensis (Gao & Che 2017) from Guanghua Formation, Pigeon hill, Taipingqiao village, Moron Dawa Daur, Hulunbuir, Dayanshu BasinInner Mongolia China.
At 8cm, this is a good sized example of this rare amphibian; the skull, vertebral column and highly specialized pelvic adaptation,are in excellent detail as are all four limbs, each with individual digits and even claws. The upper and lower jaws are in evidence and the minute 'sawblade' teeth are finely preserved..............there is also soft-tissue preservation of skin on the main body and all limbs.
Altogether an amazing legacy of Mesozoic life, at an affordable price !
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.
