Stunningly Prepared Psychopyge elegans Trilobite - 3.6"

This is a stunningly prepared example of a rare and very bizarre trilobite Psychopyge elegans. Psychopyge has a very distinctive elongated rostrum coming off the top of it's head which is about 2/3 the length of the body of the trilobite. It also has 3 rows of tiny spines along it's back, which have been prepared free of the hard limestone and are free-standing in this example. There is NO RESTORATION on this specimen.

Good Psychopyge are starting to get much more rare as the layer they come from has been now quarried continuously for over 20 miles. Finding more of them requires digging into the hillside farther which about multiples the amount of overburden and work required to find them by several times.
