Hi all,

I recently visited Wren's Nest and could do with some IDs, please. I'm a bit out of my depth with Silurian critters. All fossils are < 2cm in size. File names may be a bit misleading [wink]

Thanks, Gandalf, that's really useful. I was way off the mark with the Favosites gothlandics!

Try and clean the trilobite head with a toothbtush and some water because they look pretty cool when cleaned. The first two are trilobite heads. Anyway whilst on the subject I wonder I anyone knows what these two other fossils from wrens nest are, they look like trilobites but I am not sure 🤔
