LAGERSTATTE CRUSTACEAN - CARBONIFEROUS, SCOTLAND


Pseudotealliocaris etheridgei ( Peach 1882 )

Beautifully preserved complete Shrimp from the famous old locality of Glencartholm in Dumfries and Galloway. Glencartholm is an example of a Fossil - Lagerstatte site with exceptional (even soft bodied) preservation. It has produced large numbers of fish and Arthropods but the site was finished by the late 19th century. This specimen came from Gregory &  Bottley of London and is an old Victorian specimen. Material from Glencartholm is no longer available and the site such as it is has protected status. Excellent detail under magnification.

Glencartholm, 4 miles N.W. of Canobie, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.
