.77" Lemureops Kilbeyi Trilobite - Fillmore Formation, Utah

 
 
 
 
This is a .77" long specimen of Lemureops kilbeyi (Adrain 2009) from the Fillmore Formation of Utah. This species was described in 2009 based on parts, but to my knowledge the examples we are offering are the first to be sold commercially. It comes from a new lease we started digging this spring, which is lower in the Fillmore Formation (Carolinites nevadensis Zone) than has been previously dug commercially.

This trilobite is complete, and larger than average for the species. Unlike this one, about 80% of the ones we found were molts, so it's difficult to get them with their cheeks intact.
