.55" Wide, Enrolled Eldredgeops - Wanakah Shale, New York

 
 
 
This is a very detailed, .55" wide, enrolled Eldredgeops rana rana trilobite from the Wanakah Shale of the New York. This comes from a site near Darien that has produced trilobites of the species with what are believed to be preserved color patterns.

Article on these fascinating specimens excerpted below: Ancient Trilobites Featured Spotted Camouflage

This particular specimen does not appear to show this color patterning. It is a nice trilobite never the less with excellent eye detail. There is a small brachiopod attached to its head.
