Thalassina is an extant genus of mud lobsters, composed of nine species that are distributed in the Indo-West Pacific Ocean.
The offered specimens come from a geological formation with phosphatic concretions that occurs in Java, Indonesia. The peculiar mode of preservation makes preparation often difficult and, as most of the lobsters from this locality, these specimens have unprepared phosphatic outliers, minor native repairs with sand and glue. The specimens are partly encrusted with bryozoans. A few scleractinian corals also occur.
Specimen 1 (first on photo 1)
Both propodites are glued, the left one is broken. The dactylopodites are still connected by a bit of matrix and look genuine.
Specimen 2 (second on photo 1)
Both propodites are glued, the left one seems reconstructed. The dactylopodites are still connected by a bit of matrix and look genuine.
Specimen 3 (third on photo 1)
Both propodites are genuine and very finely preserved. The dactylopodites seem to be glued and genuine.
Specimen 4 (fourth on photo 1)
The left propodites could possibly be reconstructed. The right one is genuine and still has a bit of matrix. The dactylopodites seem to be glued and genuine.
The specimens' photographs are in this order.
