Age: Lower Ordovician
Formation: Kunda Level
Location: Near St. Petersburg, Russia
Size: Trilobite is 2.8 inches long
This is a fine example of an uncommon trilobite. It is a complete Asaphus lepidurus from Russia. This type of trilobite is from the Kunda Level, meaning it is older in geologic age than most of the large-eyed Russian trilobites you see. Asaphus lepidurus has small eyes - this trilobite showcases this feature beautifully. The bug has great color and fine detail - it is a very clean example. The large trilobite displays very well on the very aesthetic matrix plate. This is a very nice specimen of this early Asaphid trilobite.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
