Who doesn't appreciate a good brachiopod? :)

But the orthoconic nautiloids, corals, sponge and gastropods look great too! 

And what a shed load of super trilobites, a great haul! :trilowalk:

Love the report, thanks very much for sharing.

This was my favorite find of the day...it would have been complete but it’s missing the right part of the cephalon. It’ll prep out to a pretty nice trilo minus a portion of the head. 

 

I forgot the name but this is a small spiny trilobite. It looks awesome prepped!

 

These are what you are looking for with these trilobites. Barely showing. Easy to miss if it’s too bright out.

Leon found the first ever complete of this trilobite...this one has horns that curl around. I forgot the name of this one. I have only a partial cephalon. When Leon sold the first one it went for $30,000. Crazy stuff!
