Here is a gorgeous example of an unusual trilobite. This is a Subasaphus platyurus from the Ordovician of Russia. It is easy to see the differences between this type and the more common Russian Asaphids - this type has long genal spines, for example. This trilobite is extremely 3-dimensional and wonderfully articulated. It is quite prone and exhibits very fine detail. The sweeping genal spines are beautifully displayed and the large eyes are easily seen. The thick-shelled exoskeleton has great color - it is a dark caramel with natural reddish highlights. The bug is well positioned on the buff-colored matrix block, with a spherical cystoid (Echinosphaerites sp.) also on the plate. This is a very displayable specimen of a highly collectable trilobite.
