If you ever want to part with some Norweigan trilobites, let me know. I think I know a guy who might be interested. (It's me, by the way. I'm the guy who's interested.) :P

I am all about trading. Let me know how you do, and I will do the same. I don't think I have any trilobites from Norway yet, so anything you find is going to be of interest to me!

Very nice finds! Looks like it might be Phacops to me (based on the eye structure and pygidium).

Phacops (or Eldredgeops) are Devonian in age. 
These are much older. ;)

My guess is Asaphus sp.

Here is an excellent monograph:

Really hard to tell what it is from the pics. I would guess Asaphus sp., but at the same time, it looks like there is the remnant of a glabellar furrow and genal spines in there which almost makes me thing Megitaspis sp.

 Ah yes, sorry. I forgot that the rocks were pre-Devonian :D

Oh sorry, forgot to mention what kind of species they are. I'm pretty sure most of the the trolobites I found are Asaphus sp. They are common in the area of slemmestad. @DevonianDigger impressive that you knew that!

 

I wrote that the fossils are probably around 420 mill years old. They are more likely around 445 million years old, because the formation is from ordovician.

See, if @piranha wanted to, he could probably tell you what species they are, their birthdays, and their favorite colors.

I found around 10 trilobites or parts of them.

Hi, nice finds! The norwegian bugs look very beautifull with their black armour, when prepped right. This is sometimes very difficult, because sediment is very touchy to the shells, and a lot of them have terrace lines.

 

If you find connected pleura, you should immediately stopp hammering and pack carefully all stones (even fine splinters) possibly connected to the bug.

 

Good luck for the next time!
