Hi,

No, sorry,  it's the cephalic fringe of a trinucleid trilobite.

The complete trilobite is an Ogyginus corndensis, common at Gilwern.

Hi CurtKnap

That's interesting, have you got a link showing a picture of a trilobite with the fringe, I cannot find one that shows that detail the same as the photo.

is that farmer still charging over £25 for access?

As far as i am aware the only access now is booking the shephards hut minimum 2 nights when access is free.
There may be an odd day when access is via a planned group visit...but there may be others that know more about that

The whole thing about access to this place is a disgrace. Fossil collecting for the rich only. If you don't want to spend £200 on sleeping in a shed for two nights you can't go. Welsh farmers, infamous for having a firm grip on their wallets.
