Photo of Carpopenaeus fossil



This site near Hjoula in Lebanon produces some amazing lobsters and crabs, but there are lots more of these shrimp, Carpopenaeus callirostris than anything else. They vary in size up to a maximum of 9cm, and can show the finest detail. Some preparators will paint in missing or faint appendages, but I buy untouched examples.
