Marjum Formations near U-Dig Quarry
Gene gifted this Modocia to me. Although it's not complete it's a fine specimen with some excellent details. I did gift him a box of fossils from Ohio and Maryland so I'll count this as a trade. These trilobites are relatively rare to find intact and complete. Gene claims one is found every 8-10 hours in the Marjum. The Marjum is brittle and unforgiving. Care must be taken to preserve these specimens in the field.
