This is an outstanding fossil crustacean. It is an excellent Pseudastacus hakeliensis from the Cretaceous of Lebanon. This wonderful specimen was recently obtained from an old collection. This specimen exhibits extraordinary detail. Both claws are intact and beautifully displayed. The sementation of the antennae is very distinct, and the entire exoskeleton is clearly defined. The Eryma is well centered on the natural plate of lithographic limestone. And, best of all, there is NO ENHANCEMENT OR RESTORATION, whatsoever, to this remarkable fossil. This is the most detailed example of this arthropod that we have ever seen.
This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
