Nice pieces,Adam

 

Thank you! :)

Next I have some cleaned up Elrathia kingii. 1.2 cm long. The first one has a damaged front border to the cephalon and when I foolishly popped it a bit fell off which i have glued back, badly. It also has an upside down Itagnostus head next to it that i have left.

Next : this one has another cephalon fixed to it's cephalon, which couldn't be removed. Main specimen 1.8 cm long.

And then i got to bash up some matrix and found these plus the Itagnostus bits I posted earlier.

This cephalon is 1.5 mm at its widest point.20180213_211230-1-1.jpg.0f526f567de0240eb97be6eb34173e7e.jpg

And this one 1.2 cm long. 20180213_211431-1.thumb.jpg.13bcb844c4c29d294f5eb81b79340ffe.jpg

And this big cephalon which is 1.8 cm wide, this would have been a big one!

So thanks once again to Tony @ynot for his generosity and kindness in sending me replacements for lost specimens and the some! 

Cheers, Tony, i'm absolutely delighted!

Did you see the tiny Itagnosus that I posted earlier? 

More coming soon with Ralph's Upper Cambrian bugs from Georgia! :)

And to bring my Cambrian up to date for now, another species of Trilobite sent to me by another TFF member. Ralph @Nimraviswas kind enough to send me these three examples of Aphelaspis brachyphasis as a bonus included with some wonderful Mazon Creek fossils he sent me. These are from the lowest part of the Upper Cambrian Paibian series and thus maybe about 496 mya. From the Conasuaga Formation by the Conasuaga River in North Gerogia, USA.  They may be not as well known or commercial as the slightly older  Elrathia kingii and perhaps not as pretty but they are much rarer and not generally available on the market at all. I think they're rather lovely and the thought that I maybe the only person in Africa to own this species is rather exciting! :wub: Thank you, Ralph!

Hmmm. 

My photos don't do them justice, they're more detailed than they appear here. 

Anyway, thanks for looking, here endeth my Cambrian collection for now. 

Time to return to the Ordovician for a bit.
