Small Outstretech Kainops Trilobite - Oklahoma

 
This is a Kainops raymondi trilobite from the Lower Devonian Haragan Formation of Oklahoma. This specimen was collected from a lease on the opposite side of the hill from the famous Black Cat Mountain location. It has been prepared under microscope using air abrasives, a process that took several hours of work.

Kainops is often confused with a similar genus found in the same layers Paciphacops, but one of the differentiating factors is the Kainops has many more eye facets. These facets can easily been seen in this specimen.
