Ayshaeia Lobopod FossilDescription: This is a fine essentially complete specimen of one of the most unusual Burgess Shale type creatures: a lobopodian similar to Ayshaeia. The genus is better known from the actual Burgess Shale of Canada, and this is the first known example of what is most likely a different species to be commercially offered first described in 1989. No other lobopodian displays the paired limbs at the anterior as seen here.
