This one is Paciphacops campbelli with only 3 or occasionally 4 lenses per lens file.  Congrats! happy0144.gif

The taxonomy has changed over the years and the online resources have not been able to follow along with the literature, resulting in a lot of confusion. emo73.gif mail?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmail.yimg.com%2Fok%2Fu%2Fassets%2Fimg%2Femoticons%2Femo11.gif&t=1704229064&ymreqid=23281213-8dc1-3cff-1cd9-5a005b01cf00&sig=r1c9a23KdO4WFU_1hngxcg--~D

 

Delo 1935: Phacops raymondi

 

Maksimova 1972: Paciphacops n. gen. that included Paciphacops raymondi.

 

Ramsköld & Werdelin 1991 established the new genus Kainops that includes: Kainops raymondi having eyes with "normal" sclera, in contrast to the strongly thickened eye sclera of Paciphacops, which is clearly evident in your textbook example. The same paper established the new name combination of Paciphacops campbelli replacing Paciphacops raymondi (Maksimova 1972).

A brilliant mailbox score for mePost.gif.ebdf4d0b596d8715ab280d36afb437e8.gif

This was sent to me by the totally wonderful Mike @minnbuckeye

My favourite period - Ordovician,

My favourite epoch - Wenlock

My favourites phylum - brachiopods

My favourite genus - Leptaena.

A range of phyla beyond the brachiopods.

This is the perfect gift for me.:b_love1:

20240107_022213.thumb.jpg.2e9c1b01ceeaf574605260fc1e0591ea.jpg

The top lot is a wonderful selection of unprepped Cerro Gordo Late Devonian stuff and the top right few are additions to my Decorah collection.

The others are an amazing amount of specimens to add to my blooming Waldron Shale collection.

What more could one want?

I cried a lot going through these.

Thanks, Mike, it means so much in so many different ways.

Received this fossil today. I asked a Paleontologist about the id of this, and it is likely to be part of a neural spine. 19cm in length and happy to have this in my collection!

Looks great although I'm not fond of this kind of 'over restoration', since only the centrums are original and all the neural arches and spines are reconstructed. But that's just my opinion :)

 Nothing wrong with that opinion either.  To each their own!  I wanted to make it more showy for display and I got exactly what I wanted so I'm pleased.

Sauropod toe claw from Niger.

 

Since to date the only described sauropods from Niger are Jobaria tiguidensis and Spinophorosaurus it's most probably from one of these. 

 

Location: Tiouraren Hill, Téneré Desert, Niger

Size: 18 cm / 7.1"

I typically collect my own fossils, but I purchased this inexpensively priced trilobite online a few days ago. It is a nice enrolled Kaskia chesterensis specimen from the Bangor Limestone of Alabama.

Excellent 3.7 cm Afrovenator abakensis tooth from the Jurassic Tiouraren Formation of Niger. So excited to add another uncommon dinosaur to the collection!

Just received this fossilized charcoal from the K-T boundary of Yucatan, Mexico.

 

This fossilized material comes from forest residues, charred following the giant meteorite impact in the Yucatan Peninsula ~65 million years ago that killed the dinosaurs. 

 

K-T boundary material from the Yucatan area is currently protected and rare to find. Happy to have this in my collection.
