Tsinania trilobite China - info?

Recommended Posts

Wrangellian

I got this from the usual place but it came with very little info (the page might have had the info but I failed to write it down and now I can't find anything on it... I sense that it will be another one of those hours-long sleuthing sessions, so I thought it's easier to ask here ;) )

All I know is, Tsinania sp, China. I gather it's Upper Cambrian. No idea of the formation or specific location within China. Very soft powdery matrix!

I can try some better pics if required.

Hmm, Tsinania? Could be Shergoldia (a Tsinaniidae) from the Sandu formation (Furongian) around Guole, Province Guangxi.

Ah, thanks. I would not have bet that the seller was 100% reliable with the ID, either.

Boy, my topic almost got buried - I found it already near the bottom of the 2nd page of topics listed under the ID subforum! (Maybe we need to have more topics per page, if that's possible.)

Maybe you already know about this, but here's a tip for finding your own posts easily. Click on "Activity" at the top right, then on "My activity streams" in the drop down window and then on "Content I started".

Thanks, I didn't really have trouble finding it (tho I would have if I had let it go much longer), but that will come in useful in other areas.
