This is a very nice, detailed example of a classic U.S. trilobite. It is a complete Arctinurus boltoni from the Silurian of New York. This is one of the most sought-after and displayable types of trilobites in the world. We collected the quarry for a year, and only found a handful of complete specimens. This fabulous trilobite was acquired from the elite collection of  the late Eugene Thomas - one of the most respected trilobite collectors in the world. This wonderfully articulated trilobite exhibits very fine detail - the entire carapace of the trilobite is just covered with distinct pustules. The trilobite is extremely inflated, and the cephalic process (''snout'') is easily seen. The pleural spines terminate in sharp points, and the broad, fan-shaped pygidium is beautifully displayed. The bug has great color and contrast and is nicely showcased on the large, rectangular plate. This is a very fine, complete example of this highly collectible Lichid trilobite direct from the Eugene Thomas Collection.

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