REPLICA OF EARLY FOSSIL SPIDER
FROM THE WEST MIDLANDS
 
Eophrynus prestvicii
(second hand)
​ 

A cast of an exceptionally well preserved early arachnid, Eophrynus prestvicii, from a siderite (ironstone) nodule in Coal Measures shales, discovered at Coseley, near Dudley, in the West Midlands, in the nineteenth century.

It is of Carboniferous age, and 315 million years old. These arachnids are closely related to spiders, but lacked the ability to spin silk.

 

The original specimen from which this cast was taken (No.BU 699) is in the Lapworth Museum of Geology, University of Birmingham. it remains to this day one of the most impressive Carboniferous arthropods in the World.

  
This replica was produced by Stuart Baldwin's company Educational Palaeontological Reproductions in the 1990s. It is a delightful and very detailed cast.
