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

    Jammer dat de grootste beschadiging niet zichtbaar was op de foto's.

    Bedankt voor je feedback. Had ik misschien inderdaad beter op moeten letten en zal ik zeker meenemen voor de toekomst!
