.8" Juvenile Asaphus Latus Trilobite - Russia

 
 
 
This is a really cute, little, juvenile Asaphus latus trilobite from the St. Petersburg region of Russia. There is one patch of shell restoration on the front of the head. Maybe 2-3% in total.

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.
