This is a nice set of Ceraurus pleurexanthemus from the famous Walcott-Rust Quarry (WRQ) near Trenton Falls, New York. This type is one of the original trilobites that Charles D. Walcott and James Hall made famous well over a century ago! Two of the trilobites are fully complete, and all three specimens on the plate have their eyes intact, which is quite unusual. The trilobites have good detail preserved, showcasing the pustulated, thick shell exoskeletons well. The bugs are very well displayed on the HUGE limestone plate - fully natural, no compositing! Anyone who knows anything about the history of US trilobites knows how important a piece like this is. This is an unusual triple example of classic Ceraurus pleurexanthemus trilobites from New York State.
