Here is a fabulous example of a very unusual Canadian trilobite. This is Olenellus roddyi from the Lower Cambrian of Newfoundland. This specimen was found by Steve Hess in 1988 and has been in the DeRosear Collection ever since. We have heard that this location is now gone! This trilobite is complete and exhibits fine detail. The flaring genal spines and long pleural spines are easily seen, and even the long telson (tailspine) is present. The trilobite has very good natural color and contrast and is nicely showcased on the large plate of shale. This is one of the best examples of this uncommon species of trilobite from this exotic location.

This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally.
