description  
This incredibly rare sponge was identified by the NHM in London some twenty years ago, apparently it's only the third specimen they had seen from this famous locality. Ischadites sponges are a primitive form of multi-cellular animal. Approximately 445 million years old. This specimen has magnificent detail throughout and resided in the late Professor GORDON WALKDEN collection. Fossils Direct is a premium collectors website.
