Here is a very busy multiple trilobite plate. These trilobites are Elrathia kingi from the Cambrian of Utah. The trilobites are well preserved and exhibit fine detail. The largest Elrathia at the top of the plate is complete with free cheeks and is 1 1/3 inches long - quite large for this type. All of these ancient arthropods have nice color and contrast. The bugs are well showcased on the very large, natural plate of shale. This is a very cool multiple plate of Elrathia kingi from the Wheeler Formation.
