Size: The fossil crab is 2 ¾” in width.
Fossil Location: Eocene, Gold Beach, Oregon
Comments: This is very well preserved specimen of Orbitoplax. Both
arms and claws are exquisitely preserved. Six mostly complete legs
are present. The specimen exhibits a tan/brown color set off nicely
against the light gray background concretion. It was discovered by
cracking the concretion in which it was residing for so many millions
of years. The concretion was then re-glued and painstakingly curated
with air abrasion. (The positive never splits cleanly from the negative
in these concretions.) Many hours of skilled work are required to prepare
one of these crab concretions.
