Asaphiscus wheeleri Age: Middle Cambrian Formation: Wheeler Formation Location: Millard County, Utah Size: Trilobite is 1.65 inches long Price:$129.00
This is a very nice, large specimen of Asaphiscus wheeleri from the Cambrian of Utah. This trilobite was found by Steve Hess in 2006 at the U-Dig site. This type of trilobite has a huge, semicircular cephalon and a large, somewhat rounded pygidium. This bug is nicely preserved in a prone, outstretched position. Both free cheeks are intact, which is quite unusual. The dark color of the fossil contrasts wonderfully with the lighter-colored matrix. The trilobite is very well showcased on the large, natural plate of shale. This is a very fine example of Asaphiscus from the House Range of Utah.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
