A great pair of finds, beautiful Calamostachys. And an intriguing beastie, doesn't look quite right for Palaeocaris but I have no better ideas.

Yes, the segmentation on this beautiful specimen is finer and non-overlapping, as compared to Paleocaris.

This time i was rewarded with these 2 finds.

Either would be a trip-maker, and the arthropod could be an important find!

The arthropod looks a bit like Acanthotelson.

 Yes i have no better ideas that's why i put a "?" by it, the size is very small and magnifying doesn't show anymore than the photos maybe a juvenile something.

 I agree.

I have looked at that as well and the same problem the segments are finer.

 

Thank-you all for your comments

I'm really pleased with the cone 

Cheers John

Just my two cents but I agree with this and was about to post it.

 

Beautiful finds by the way.

A bit. However...

...there are still some structural inconsistencies in the segmenting.

Cool finds, however, the second one seems to have way to many segments to be any crustacean.

Yeah, and what appear to be bits of adhering shell look like they might be calcareous.
Any kind of Carboniferous tube worm we should look at?

The specimen in question reminds me of Cornulites that I've found here in the Toronto area (Upper Ordovician), and apparently they did exist in the Carboniferous, too (if you believe Wikipedia)...

 

Great finds, @t-tree!!!

I have taken a few more photos where you can see front legs better.

Very nice! I know you didn’t find much, but what you did find is outstanding!

 

You gotta love @piranha (Scott) our walking encyclopedia! I say that with the utmost respect! Well done sir! :fistbump:
