Anomocarella TrilobitesDescription: This specimen is of a genus whose first complete specimens were only found two years ago when a total of just THREE were discovered in two locations in Shandong province, China. The genus was originally placed in the Asaphiscidae of the Order Aaphida, but is thought by other researchers to be a ptychopariid, as listed here. This is a most uncommon part/counterpart example (positive to right), and the only such example I have seen.
