This is a fabulous double example of a rare trilobite. It is a pair of Phacops rana norwoodensis from Iowa. This specimen came directly from the famous DeRosear Collection. There is one outstretched and one somewhat curled trilobite on the plate. The trilobites are very inflated and 3-D. The distinct bugs have a beautiful brown-colored exoskeleton and great detail preserved. The trilobites are well displayed on the rectangular block of limestone - both are natural to the plate, not composited. This is a rare multiple plate of very hard-to-find US trilobites from the DeRosear Collection.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
