This is a beautiful example of the Russian asaphid trilobite Asaphus lepidurus. It is 2.88 inches long and very three dimensional. The preparation that has been done on the specimen is exceptional, it looks like it is ready to just crawl right off of the rock. It was quarried from the St. Petersburg region of Russia fromt he famous Putilovo quarry.

Like nearly all Russian trilobites it has some minor shell restoration. There are a few restored patches of shell on the tail, a portion of the right eye has been restored and parts of several pleural tips on the right side have restoration.
