This is a spectacular example of a classic US trilobite. It is a fabulous Bellacartwrightia (Neometacanthus) calliteles from Livingston County, New York. This amazing specimen was acquired from a major trilobite collection. This type of trilobite has long, thick genal spines, and many long pygidial spines - both of these features are clearly defined and beautifully displayed on this specimen. The inflated bug is wonderfully articulated and exhibits great detail - the compound eye facets are seen in both eyes, and the axial nodes are even preserved! The large trilobite has very nice color and contrast and is well showcased on the large plate of shale that also contains a cool horn coral. This is a very collectible, top quality example of this highly sought-after trilobite from New York.
