An Edinburgh Geological Society evening field excursion on Wednesday 5th June 2013 added to our knowledge of one of the most famous palaeontological localities in the world: the Muirhouse ‘shrimpbed’. It is exposed on the shores of the Firth of Forth, just to the west of Edinburgh’s Granton Harbour [NT 219 772], and is best known for its shrimps, fish and, most significantly, the elusive conodont animal (Figure 1) (Aldridge et al. 1993; Knell 2012).
