This is an outstanding Russian trilobite. It is an Asaphus raniceps from the Lower Ordovician. This unusual species of trilobite has very small eyes and a more triangular cephalon than most of the Middle Ordovician Asaphids. The trilobite is almost perfectly prone and wonderfully articulated. It is quite 3-dimensional and exhibits outstanding detail. The glossy, caramel-colored exoskeleton of the bug contrasts beautifully with the light-colored matrix. It is well positioned on the somewhat rectangular plate of sculpted limestone. This is a top-quality specimen of this uncommon Asaphid trilobite from the Lower Ordovician.
