1.8" Asaphus Platyurus Trilobite

 
 
This is an uncommon Asaphus platyurus trilobite from the Vilpovitsy quarry near St. Petersburg, Russia. It's 1.8" long and nicely prepared from the surrounding limestone.

Like nearly all of the trilobites from these quarries they do have some shell restoration, as it tends to flake off during collection. There is about 5% shell restoration in a few small patches on the thorax and the front of the head. This is about average for these trilobites.
