Products description

 

Here is a nice „welsh  Flat fish”  that is actually a trilobite from the family of  Asaphidae.
But in the early years of the palaeontology was this fossil described as a “unusual flat fish” from the small village Llandeilo in South Wales.  This sympatric misinterpretation makes  
Reverend Dr. Edward Lhwyd some kind of famous in the world of palaeontology.

Meadotown Shropshire, UK 
Size of Trilobite:about 16 mm long
Age:Meadotown Shropshire, UK (about 455 Mill. Years)
