Fossil hunting in Carmarthenshire

I had heard rumours of large well preserved trilobites in the rocks near Llandeilo.So it was exciting to find some fragments of Nobiliasaphus tyrannus in a small quarry close to Dynevor park. My friend discovered the best find of the day which was the hypostome or mouthparts of this predatory trilobite which lived 460 million years ago during the Ordovician period.
