Found this perfect Speeton Shrimp in the first 5 mins of my holiday ! then a new find for me is this Lobster which i need to put a name to yet both finds are from Speeton  on the Yorkshire coast UK.

That shrimp is amazing, the preservation of the surface ornament is the best I think I've ever seen.  :wub: :drool:  I can't offer any suggestions on the lobster.  Maybe a couple of views from different angles would help?

Gawd, that shrimp is stunning! Can you post more photos from other angles? I think that could win my vote for FOTM!

I agree with Don & Carl, best Speeton shrimp I've seen, definitely a FOTM contender! Hoploparia dentata is a possibility for the lobster (though I wouldn't know what's diagnostic for it).
