Trilobite cephalon # 7

Recommended Posts

Rocky Stoner

Beginning to recognize more of the minor details. A small portion of the eye was protruding from the surface a fresh split.

A bit of scratching under the microscope revealed my favorite so far. I call it #7.

OK, ...... I'm hooked !

Thanks again folks.

Thank you, thank you, thank you !

I thought I might have found #8.

I first saw what looked like a brachiopod with a crinoid stem perfectly centered.

I was contemplating a caption ... Dude, I was here first.

Then I saw what looked like the the surface of another cephalon.

I started scratching it out and now do not understand what it is, or where its going.

It almost looks like a gastropod, but also looks like it may be a severely damaged trilobite.

Can you recognize it and give me an idea as to where I should continue scratching ?  or not?

Thanks again.

That looks like a cephalon next to a brach with a crinoid imprinted on it. The first cephalon a real Beauty, amazing find!

Or what @piranha says:D that's particularly embarrassing because I've found one of them before:wacko:
