This is a wonderful Russian trilobite. It is a complete Megistaspis laticaudata from the Lower Ordovician. This type of trilobite is one of the most sought-after types found in Russia, because of its long, pointed body shape. This specimen is complete with both free cheeks present and tightly attached. The bug is wonderfully outstretched, which is quite unusual. The trilobite is nicely articulated, and the fine detail of the thick-shelled exoskeleton is easily seen. The long, thin genal spines and the short caudal spine are extremely well defined. The protruding eyes of the trilobite are quite evident. The caramel-colored trilobite contrasts beautifully with the light-colored matrix. The ancient arthropod is well positioned on the natural plate of limestone. This is a very collectible trilobite from the Kunda Layers of Russia.
