Asaphus trilobites 1
An amazing plate of two types of trilobite, Asaphus intermedius & Asaphus punctatus.
The preservation of these trilobites is superb
They were discovered in the Asery Level, Llanvirin Series, Middle Ordovician, 472 to 461 million years old, Vilpovitcy Quarry, Volchov River, St Petersburg, Russia.
Trilobites ("three-lobes") are extinct arthropods that form the class Trilobita. They appeared in the Middle Cambrian epoch and flourished throughout the lower Paleozoic era before beginning a drawn-out decline to extinction when, during the Late Devonian extinction, all trilobite orders, with the sole exception of Proetida, died out.
The last of the trilobites disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian about 250 million years ago
The plate contains seven trilobites and two blastoids.
Blastoids are an extinct type of stemmed echinoderm, and are often referred to as "sea buds".
An incredible trilobite plate that makes a wonderful display for the home or office.
