Very cool find. Most arachnids from the past we only see trapped in amber. This specimen is so much older and very interesting to see.

 

 

Cheers.

The specimen is definitely not a trigonotarbid arachnid, but a true spider (Araneae) and the first known representative of this order from the Carboniferous of Germany.

Well done!

Thanks all for the votes and congratulations! This critter getting awarded IPFOTY-2019 is real honour. I'd also like to mention a few developments regarding this fossil. It is currently with Dr. Dunlop at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin for study. I can now say that the 'questionable epithet' above is wrong... The specimen is definitely not a trigonotarbid arachnid, but a true spider (Araneae) and the first known representative of this order from the Carboniferous of Germany.

Congratulations! You should also get a Paleo Partner award.
