Bargain 2.1" Asaphus Lepidurus Trilobite - Russia

 
This is a bargain specimen of the Ordovician trilobite Asaphus lepidurus. It was collected from the Putilovo quarry in the St. Petersburg region of Russia. It's 2.1" long and laid out nice and prone on the rock.

Like nearly all of the trilobites from these layers there is some shell restoration as the shell tends to flake during collection. There is about 10-12% shell restoration on this specimen including the left eye, several pleural tips on the left side and some other scattered patches.
