Species Name: Leptaena depressa
Age: Silurian, Wenlock Series
Location: Dudley, West Midlands, UK
Leptaena depressa brachiopod fossil preserved within a limestone matrix from the Silurian limestone of Dudley, West Midlands, UK. Leptaena depressa dates from 427 to 433 Mya during the Wenlock Series of the Silurian period. A wide variety of crinoids, brachiopods, corals and trilobites can all be found within the Wenlock Limestone of the UK, indicative of the shallow tropical marine environment which existed in many parts of the UK throughout the Wenlock Series. The size of the specific brachiopods which we supply naturally varies but on average they measure 2.5 cm in width and they are supplied within 2" x 2" or 3" x 2" white card trays according to the size of the matrix in which they are preserved.
