Rare, 1.7" Ptychopyge Linarsoni Trilobite - Slemestadt, Norway

This is a very rare, 1.7" long Ptychopyge linarsoni trilobite from the Huk Formation of Norway.

The Huk Formation which outcrops around Oslo produces many of the same species of trilobites better known from the St. Petersburg region of Russia but with a black shell preservation. The rock is much harder than the soft, creme colored limestone their Russian counterparts are found in making them much harder to collect and prepare.

We have only been able to offer a handful of Norwegian trilobites and I've never seen another example of this species for sale.
