Hello, this trilobite was found in rock from somewhere upstate new york. It was an interesting shape different from what I have found before but it is very worn to tell exactly what it is to my knowledge, is it to broken up to id? If not I'll let the new york trilobite experts here take this one.

The trilo measures a little over an inch.

Is any locality info available?  "Upstate New York" could be Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, or Devonian.

@FossilDAWG I think devonian but it was unnaturally placed where I found this so I am unsure exactly which period.

What county in NY was it found? That would help to narrow down the possibilites.

@Fossildude19 It's tough to know as these rock were brought in from upstate to where I live nyc after hurricane sandy, I haven't been able to trace which quarry or area, I have posts with other finds from there but I am unable to tell unfortunately.
