Two Fossil Shrimp Carpopenaeus From Lebanon
This is a small plate containing two fossil shrimp of the species Carpopenaeus callirostris from the famous Cretaceous aged fossil beds near Ajoula, Lebanon. These fossil deposits were first mentioned by the Greek historian Herodotus where he said there were "fish in the stones". Unlike many lower quality specimens from this location, these shrimp have no color enhancement or restoration.
