3.2" Spiny Psychopyge Trilobite - Excellent Preparation

 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a beautifully prepared example of the bizarre trilobite Psychopyge elegans. Psychopyge has a very distinctive elongated rostrum coming off the top of it's head. There are also 3 rows of small spines along it's back, which have been prepared free of the hard limestone and are free-standing in this example.

Good Psychopyge are starting to get much more rare as the layer they come from has been now quarried continuously for over 20 miles. Finding more of them requires digging into the hillside farther which about multiples the amount of overburden and work required to find them by several times.
