    Unfortunately I don't have any UK trilo's (YET) Sad Will do next week though! geek
    Kosmos the pictures on the OP aren't loading for me..
    The other two look good though guys!
    I could get a picture of the latex moulds we've been making at uni of some Welsh trilo's though! One of our units (palaeotechniques) has us doing all sorts of lab stuff hehe

    Hi,
    All as found. The last one is the cephalon only, as are most from this location, but I love the preservation of the compound eyes. Good luck with the prep.
