Nice 1.5" Illaenus Schmidti Trilobite - Russia

 
 
Here is a very beautiful Russian trilobite of the species Illaenus schmidti. This 480 million year old arthropod looks like it is ready to crawl right off the rock.

Like nearly all Russian trilobites there is some restoration to repair shell damaged during collection. A section of shell on the front of the head (left side) has been restored.
