Wheeler Shale Trilobite ID?

Hello everyone,

 

I was looking at my collection of Wheeler Shale Elrathia trilobites and noticed one that looked different from the rest. It's cheeks look more elongated and pointy.

 

 

Could this be a different species?

 

 

Thanks,

 

Jay

I would say possibly a Modocia laevinucha

It's not a Modocia.  It's an Elrathia with a displaced cheek / genal spine.
