Pygidia, a cranidium, and now a free cheek! Great stuff. Keep looking Brian, there is sure to be a complete one there somewhere hiding.

I have a lot of phillipsia pygidiums, a free cheek, and a glabella but no full specimens yet as they are very rare in the lower Carboniferous limestone here in ireland

That's cool man! I am so happy for you, and look at posts more than what you would think. Would you want a flexicalymene trilobite?

Same situation for me here!  I have found a few pygidiums, no complete ones.... yet

Looking forward to when you find a complete trilo!
