Rarely Seen Pseudoasaphinus Gostilicyensis Trilobite

 
 
 
This is a nice example of a rarely seen Asaphid trilobite, Pseudoasaphinus gostilicyensis. It comes from the Vilpovitsy quarry in the St. Petersburg region of Russia and is under 3 inches long. It's well inflated and the matrix has been sculpted so that it displays very aesthetically.

Like nearly all trilobites from these quarries there is some shell restoration due to shell that flakes off during collection or weathering. This one has about 10-15% restored shell, spread out in small patches all over it's body.
