I recently got a nice deal on this Leanchoilia illecebrosa specimen from the Chengjiang biota. It looked like a dorsally compressed specimen which rarely have appendages preserved, so I was just expecting to clean up all the tool marks. However, while cleaning it up, I realized that it is in fact laterally compressed, and actually quite well preserved at that! The legs are starting to come out, and part of me is hoping that other appendages might be preserved as well. All prep is done with a needle under a magnifying light. It's going slow since I need to be very careful, but it's getting there.
