This is an incredible plate of fossils from the famous Walcott-Rust Quarry near Trenton Falls, New York.. There is a rare Unidentified Proetid, two true Ceraurus pleurexanthemus, a fabulous Cincinnaticrinus varibrachialus, and bryozoans on the plate. This type is one of the original trilobites that Charles D. Walcott and James Hall made famous a century ago! The trilobites are complete, with both free cheeks and eyes intact. There are also a long-stemmed Cincinnaticrinus varibrachialus and bryozoa preserved on the plate. Anyone who knows anything about the history of US trilobites knows how important a fossil association from this locality is - it is a piece of history. This is a unique sea floor bottom slab from the WRQ.
