  • Flexicalymene £3.00£6.00 ex VAT

    Flexycalymene trilobite fossils, (syn: diacalymene) are a well known extinct species which lived during the Ordovician period, 449 to 443 million years ago and were found in Erfoud, Morocco. These samples exhibit quite clear morphological features such as the pygidium, cephalon and thorax as well as the shape and segments as expected. They appear to have a rusty, limonotic colouration which is due to iron oxide staining in the beds the fossils were found in. Available in various sizes and come supplied in a tray with a label.

  • Ogyginus sp. pygidium £3.00£5.00 ex VAT

    Ogyginus sp fossil pygidiums from the Llanvirn series during the middle of the Ordovician period, the samples come from mid Wales in the UK and are preserved on a fine grained solid mudstone matrix. The pygidiums (tail) are available and it is believed that this is due to moulting behaviour of the animal in which it anchored its tail to the sea floor to moult its old carapace, during the process. The samples are well preserved and range between 15 t0 20 mm in size and increasingly more difficult to come by. They are ideal for both collectors and enthusiasts but also ideal for educational use to describe the animals behaviour in life, each samples will come supplied in a white card tray with an information label.
