This is a very large plate of very large trilobites. This amazing specimen is from the Middle Ordovician of Russia. There are two excellent Asaphid trilobites and one cystoid, a primitive echinoderm, on the same plate. The trilobite on the left side of the plate is Asaphus (Neoasaphus) cornutus. This trilobite has a very wide body style and short eyes. The trilobite on the right is Asaphus (Neoasaphus) punctatus. This species has very long, protruding eye stalks. Both trilobites are quite prone and nicely articulated. The bugs have wonderful, thick exoskeleton. Associated with the two trilobites is Echinosphaerites sp., a spherical cystoid. All of the fossils are beautifully inflated and 3-dimensional. The fossils all have striking natural color, and are well-showcased on the large matrix plate. This is a fabulous plate of two extremely large trilobites preserved on the same plate.
