Massive, 2 1/2" Flexicalymene Trilobite - Richwood, Kentucky

 
 
 
 
This is an absolute monster Flexicalymene meeki trilobite. At 2.47" in length it is one of the largest examples of this species ever found.

A small pocket of these giant flexies was found at a construction site in Richwood, Kentucky several years ago. It was only accessible for a short period of time and now lies underneath a large warehouse.

The specimen is gorgeous. It is nicely inflated, laid out nearly prone with excellent shell. It was found in loose rock, so it was remounted on a more solid piece of shale for display.
