This is a very collectible fossil arthropod from the Jurassic. It is a HUGE Eryon arctiformes (Extinct Lobster) from the famous Solnhofen Limestone of Germany. This particular specimen was acquired from the famous Chance Collection. This type of arthropod has a distinct fan tail and long appendages that stretch out to the front of the head - these appendages are quite evident on this specimen. The head, body, and tail of the crustacean are very well preserved - the antennae are also easily seen. The fossil decapod has great dark color and nice contrast and is well showcased on the large, natural plate of lithographic limestone. And, remember, this fossil is HUGE - SIX inches long! This is an extremely large, displayable example of this classic Jurassic arthropod direct from a major fossil collection. (Comes with Dr. Chance's original reference photo and ID notes.)

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