1.45" Kainops Trilobite With Enrolled Lochovella - Oklahoma

 
 
 
 
This is a beautiful, 1.45" long specimen of Kainops raymondi trilobite from the Black Cat Mountain quarry near Clarita, Oklahoma. Right next to it is an enrolled Lochovella (Reedops) deckeri. This piece has been masterfully prepared with air abrasives under microscope by Bob Carroll.

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.
