From an unusual location comes this complete crab which exhibits not just the carapace but also the underside of this creature. The specimen was collected many years ago and would make a fine addition to any collection.
Collected many years ago from this classic location is a good example of this Carboniferous shrimp like creature. The specimen has been preserved on hard oil shale and has good detail. The specimen is approximately 340 million years old and would make an excellent drawer specimen.
This nodule when found, only exhibited the under side of the crab- with meticulous preparation using air abrasive techniques, we have revealed the under body of this well known and sought after crab. Examples of the under-belly are rare making this piece a "must" for the collector of crustaceans.
From an old collection comes this very sought after carboniferous Arthropod, these Arthropods are difficult to spot as they are often mistaken for other things. This particular example has been preserved in a split ironstone nodule and comes from the old coal workings of Coseley. One for the collector of rare and unusual fossils.
