A absolutely stunning example of a click beetle (Coleoptera). The detail under magnification is superb with soft parts even preserved. The specimen was discovered in a flatstone nodule. The apex of the abdomen has a slight swelling which may indicate femal genitalia, first described by Brodie. One for the serious collector of fossil insects. Approximately 200 million years old.
Another lovely piece with many Tuning fork Graptolites preserved which are approximately 475 million years old. The overall detail on each Graptolite is superb. These are colonial marine animals. A fantastic drawer fossil for the collector.
Again another beautifuly preserved mass mortality plate with many Tuning Fork Graptolites. These are colonial marine invertebrates approximately 475 million years old. A very nice drawer fossil for the collector. Excellent detail throughout.
