2.6" Asaphus Plautini Trilobite - Russia

 
 
 
 
This is a 2.6" long, prone specimen in Asaphus plautini, one of the scarcer of the many species of Asaphid trilobites found near St. Petersburg, Russia. It was found at the Vilpovitsy quarry and is Lower Ordovician in age, or approximately 460 million years old.

Like nearly all of the trilobites from these quarries there is some shell restoration as the shell tends to flake during collection, primarily on the tail.
