Hi all, Im no paleo artist, but here is my one small step beyond stick figures drawing of what we got when we put together all the parts of the trilobite from the Fort Apache Limestone near Payson. We never found a whole one, but all the parts from molts were eventually revealed. While the major paper on the trilobites from 1960s listed the only trilobite found here was Anisopyge, we are not seeing this - I think it is Ditomopyge. All three pygidiums found do not match anisopyge! Anyway, here is my attempt at the recreation. Ok, you can start throwing tomatoes now. O
I need help identifying these two trilobites. I am pretty confident it is either Ameura or Ditomopyge but they look so similar and I cannot tell which one it is. It was found in Overland Park Kansas Pennsylvanian Period. Also those fossils are not together if you can't tell they were separately but in the same formation.
