Need a QUICK ID on a Trilobite!!


Recommended Posts

 I found a tiny object locked in matrix yesterday late in the afternoon and  threw it in the bucket thinking it was a brachiopod. So when I cleaned it up a little this morning, I was surprised!! My wife fell in love with this trilobite (loves anything petite) and insisted I enter the FOTM competition. I am torn between a very small Isotelus or the more likely Anataphrus vigilans. HELP so I can enter before today's deadline (for her sake!!!).DSC_0386.thumb.JPG.658d0a22ef419f1aec855e0fc1f8a0d7.JPGDSC_0387.thumb.JPG.c4955092f6e2fb10b1c076774b6c90e8.JPGDSC_0388.thumb.JPG.43226678afe1df7fe922a93ac865db04.JPG

Out of those two I would pick Anataphrus, @Kane and @piranha would know.

Edit: When I posted jpc's comment was first but now it switched, time stamps show they were 1 second a part, you asked for quick :)

Edit 2: when you look at the fossil ID section it shows my reply was most recent. the forum can't handle the speed :). Great find Mike what is the length?

Hi,

 

@minnbuckeyeI just logged in and I don’t know if you’ve already submitted it for FOTM, but don’t worry about his name to do it, it’ll always be time to specify it later ;) Don’t let the lack of a name make you give up the contest of the month.
