Here is an excellent specimen of Asaphus (Neoasaphus) punctatus from the Ordovician of Russia. This trilobite is extremely well articulated and is almost perfectly prone. It is quite inflated and very symmetrical in appearance. Note the large, stalked eyes - a defining feature of this species. The rich, caramel- brown color of the trilobite contrasts wonderfully with the cream-colored matrix. It is almost perfectly centered on the natural plate of limestone. This is a beautiful example of this classic stalk-eyed trilobite from Russia.
