Permian (295 mil y - 290 mil y) - Odernheim, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany

Fossil plate with two handsomely preserved Branchiosaurus-specimens of the species Apateon pedestris, with beautiful retention of both skin and teeth.

Apateon pedestris was a type of small primitive amphibian with a maximal length at maturity of 15 cm. Their round body scales and external gills are frequently preserved in their fossils. Contrary to other amphibians, A. pedestris did not experience a metamorphosis, but remained in a larval stadium for its entire life, even when reaching sexual maturity. As a consequence they spent their entire existence in the water.

Material: shale (Odernheimer Kalkbank facies, Rotliegend formation)
Dimensions: 20.5 x 8 x 1.7/0.9 cm (matrix), 7.1 x 1.4 cm and 7.4 x 1.1 cm (specimens)
Geological period/age: Permian (295.0 mil y - 290.1 mil y)
Condition: two breakage lines that were present at find, but have been professionally restored
Weight: 0.409 kg
Shipping method: PostNL
