This is a beautiful example of an unusual Ordovician trilobite. It is a large Cybele panderi from St. Petersburg, Russia. This type is well known for its long, stalked eyes, which are free-standing and prominently displayed on this specimen. This type also has long pleural spines near the pygidium - this specimen also has these spines intact. The contraflexed trilobite is very inflated and 3-D and has excellent detail preserved. This impressive bug also has the distinction of having the mouthplate exposed and displayed in textbook fashion. The colorful trilobite is beautifully showcased on the large, natural block of limestone. This is a very collectible AND displayable example of this highly uncommon needle-eyed trilobite from Russia.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
