A couple of Decapods from the Brittion Fm. of Texas

Decapods is another name for crabs and their kin. Here I have two partial crab fossils from the Britton formation (Cretaceous, Turonian stage) of Texas.

The first fossil is Cenomanicarcinus vaelstrani from near Little Elm

The second fossil is a Notopocorystes dichious from near Las Colinas

I received both specimens from an auction that I won on the Fossil Forum site. Thanks to Travis for sending me these crab fossils.
