Item Description
7-7/8x10.75x.5" deep plate of limestone contains superb complete fossilized remains of a 5.25" long Acanthochirana cordata shrimp. Acanthochirana is an extinct genus of prawn that existed during the upper Jurassic period, 201.3–145 million years ago. Wonderfully preserved in Solnhofen limestone, this specimen was unearthed near Eichstaff, Bavaria, Germany. Fossil shrimp are rare in the fossil record, given the delicate natures of their exoskeletons. This specimen is complete w/even the delicate antennae present and the shrimp's eye stalk and fine leg setae discernible. Wonderful display. From the Robert M. Overstreet Collection and comes with COA.
