This is a nice 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! The specimen is complete, which is quite unusual. The trilobite has good detail preserved, showcasing the thick shell exoskeletons well. The bug is very well displayed on the large, squared limestone plate that also contains a classic bryozoan. Anyone who knows anything about the history of US trilobites knows how important a piece like this is. This is an affordable example of a classic Ceraurus pleurexanthemus trilobite from the WRQ.
