Sinosura kelheimense brittlestar fossil on matrix

A fossilised brittlestar known as Sinosura kelheimense, on its original stone matrix.

Brittlestars are closely related to starfish, and are somewhat rare in the fossil record; this is likely due to their ability to discard arms as a defence mechanism. After death it is likely most of them 'disarticulate' and therefore complete fossils may be uncommon.

Our current stock includes:

  • #1 - a reasonable specimen with a matrix measuring 65.5x40x9.5MM - it is mostly complete, and the legs of several other individuals appear too. This specimen comes from Kelheim, Bavaria, Germany.
