Hello all, As each year i made my trip to Troyes and her albian layers in Champagne. On the first day, we decided to head to a first exposure on the bank o the lake. We didnt find much : a few small ammonites, gastropods, bivalves and corals ..... also a few crab fragments, but definitly not much to brag about.... Most of the spot was covered by a layer of dead waterweed, hiding everything. After a quick meal we decided to head to spot 2, another spot by the lake. At second spot, it was even worst : the whole exposure was buried under dry weed. Since there was not much reason to keep on we decided to call it for the day ....with a very very poor loot. On second day i headed alone to our third spot, harder to reach. After a quite long walk in the mud, i reached the exposure. That one was totally free from weed. The spot was very rich. 90 % of the stuff i collected were crustacean parts. Actually the only intersting stuff... but very interesting As a teaser, here come a group view of a part of the etyus martini carapaces i found. The most abundant crustacean of the day. Stopping it for today, to be followed a trip in the numerous species of crustaceans i was able to find.... See you soon
