Pair Of Enrolled Eldredgeops Trilobites - New York

This is a pair of perfectly enrolled Eldredgeops rana rana trilobites from the Windom Shale of New York. One is .75" wide and the other is .6" wide. They are nicely inflated with good detail including eye facets. They have both been remounted on the rock.

Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25k currently described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left an excellent fossil record.
