Click to enlarge   Name Basinotopus lamarcki (Stunning example)
  ref ARTH247
  Prepared from a hard phosphatic nodule, is this quite superb matrix free crab. The carapace is highly ornate and exceptionally well preserved as is the underbelly. Specimens with the underbelly preserved are rare as these tend not to fossilise as well due to the fact that the parts are softer. A fabulous drawer specimen and as good as they come!!

  ref ARTH246
  A lovely example of this well known and highly sought after Sheppey Crab. The detail on the carapace and tail is very good and parts of the underbelly are also preserved. These items are increasingly becoming rare and are notoriously difficult to prepare from the hard phosphatic nodule. A lovely drawer specimen.

  ref ARTH245
  This rare crab is often referred to as the "Strawberry Crab" due to the bobbly carapace. This is the first one that we have seen that has the underbelly preserved. However,it has not been possible to determine the sex of this animal. A superb example, one for the collector.
