China Trilobite ID request #6

Recommended Posts

Ruger9a

Here is my number 6 unidentified trilobite.  My photography skills are very limited, but if you need clearer photos let me know.  Thanks in advance.

No ID from me, but better photography than the norm I'd say. :dinothumb:

Found the location information.  It's from the Cambrian period and the location where it was found is Guizhou, China.  Will this information change the description?

Unfortunately no ... there are numerous ptychopariid trilobites from Guizhou Province.  A formation (and a pygidium) might help to narrow it down.

I tried, my loss.  I learned three lessons last week:  (1) Always ask for all documentation information and keep it readily available.  (2) No more impulse purchases for unidentified trilobites, no matter what the price.  (3) I'm going to purchase a remote camera that doesn't require pushing a button on the camera.  I believe that's why my photos always turn out fuzzy.  Thanks Piranha.
