    Did you find this??? Complete specimens are insanely rare, and I haven't come across any material from them after 6-7 times going there... :envy:

    @Foozil Hi Izak!

     

    Yes I did find this on the trip with the club up to Forbes. It was actually the first trilobite I found on the trip. I was searching through some scrap piles and just saw it last lying there :)

    @Fossildude19 Hello

     

    I have been taking some more photos of this specimen and think I have got some that are less blurry. I will try and upload them soon
