This is a classic US trilobite. It is a true Ceraurus pleurexanthemus from the famous Walcott-Rust Quarry near Trenton Falls, New York. This type is one of the original trilobites that Charles Walcott and James Hall made famous a century ago! This specimen is complete, with both free cheeks intact. The trilobite has great detail preserved, showcasing the thick shell exoskeleton beautifully - even the stalked eyes are natural! The plate also has TWO beautiful Cincinnaticrinus varibrachialus crinoids preserved. Anyone who knows anything about the history of US trilobites knows how important a fossil from this locality is - it is a piece of history. This is a very collectible example of a classic Ceraurus pleurexanthemus trilobite with crinoids from New York State.
