Here's a cretaceous crab i found a couple years back. It's Homolopsis ethridgei.

Here it is as i found it:




And i gave it to a good friend to do the prep work for me..Here is how i got it back:



Best thing is, i still have 3 (at least one is Torynoma quadrata) more to get prepped and am going back this Christmas :D

Incredible prep on that aussie species. I'm amazed at the similarities between the preservation of the aussie crab compared to the US species like Zanthopsis sp.

Thanks, i was impressed with his handy work. Prior to this him and I had only done 3 Diprotodon optatum jaws i got last year in 2014 together (3 in 6 weeks, that was a good start to the year :D ).

I love finding concretions, never know whats going to be inside!
