The Museum’s collection of conodont microfossils is particularly strong in Carboniferous material, and includes an online database.
The Museum curates a number of historically significant conodont collections:
The Cambrian, Permian and Triassic periods are currently under-represented.
We also hold smaller sub-collections from Australia, Belgium, Belize, Brazil, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Latvia, New Zealand Saudi Arabia, Sweden and Turkey.
Intended for academic and industrial micropalaeontologists interested in conodonts. Searching the database gives broad information about discrete collections in the Museum's conodont collection.
Conodonts are mainly known from phosphatic tooth-like microfossils. Discover more about these extinct animals and their fossils.
