This is a nearly-irreplaceable fossil. It is a fabulous Aeger tipularis from the famous Solnhofen Lithographic Limestone. This dramatic specimen was recently acquired from a MAJOR fossil collection. This shrimp is extremely detailed and amazingly well-preserved. The pointed rostrum, head, carapace, legs, and antennae are all wonderfully displayed - just look at the incredible detail! The shrimp has great, natural dark color and strong contrast and is beautifully showcased on the large, unbroken plate of lithographic limestone. This is a top quality example of Aeger tipularis, one of the most detailed examples of a fossil shrimp that we have ever seen.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
