2.7" Asaphus Broeggeri Trilobite - Earliest Russian Asaphid

 
 
 
 
This is a 2.7" long example the earliest species of Russian Asaphid trilobite, Asaphus broeggeri. This is a rarely seen species. There is about 3-4% shell restoration along a repaired crack running diagonally through the body.

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 described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left a excellent fossil record.
