2" Asaphus Punctatus Trilobite - Russia

 
 
This is a nice, 2" long example of the stalked eyed trilobite Asaphus punctatus. The preservation and preparation is very nice on this cute little guy.

Like nearly all of the trilobites from this region there is some shell restoration to replace shell that flakes off when the rock is broken during collection. The restoration on this specimen is pretty minor though, 3-4% in total, in two small patches.
