3.8" Asaphus Punctatus Trilobite With Three Cystoids - Russia

This is a very interesting piece featuring a 3.8" long Asaphus punctatus and three cystoids (Echinosphaerites?). It is a natural association and a beautiful display piece. There is about 7% shell restoration on the trilobite, mainly on its tail.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25k currently described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left an excellent fossil record.
