Glad you like it, Sam.

I was hoping to find another one this trip, and I was lucky, I guess.

Not complete, but still pretty cool.

Regards, :)

Yeah really cool =] I guess they must be rare to find complete. When I think about it Ive actually found literally thousands of Lower Carboniferous/Mississippian crustaceans but only ostracods averaging about 250 microns across lol, some of the beds in the Burdiehouse Limestone I hunt for fish in are packed with them!

Regards,
