Dear all

For our classes and outreach events we challenged a couple of plastic
artists to produce 3D-printer replicas of one of our nerineids (Neoptyxis
olisiponensis) that can be found in some Late Cenomanian limestones used on
monuments and other buildings of Lisbon and its surroundings.
To better disclose its inner structure the plastic replicas are made as two
halves of the gastropod (see attached file and links).

We think this can also be useful to all that teach Invertebrate
If so you can reply to us (the price of the entire 2-half specimen is 200
euros + mail costs) or order directly:
Half 1 - <>
Half 2 - <>

Best regards,
Mario Cachao
