Calymene tristaniDescription: Enrolled trilobites are always of interest to specialist trilobite collectors. This is the first one from Spain of this species I have ever come across. The trilobite is a bit dinged up, though overall in good complete condition. It is quite large, rare, and comes from an old collection. This is the only one I have available.

This fossil comes from the George Lee Collection of Southern California. Mr. Lee accumulated a virtual where house of fossils over thirty-five years of self-collecting and purchasing. Most of the fossils were acquired during the 1960s through the mid 1990s. Unfortunately, for we collectors, many of these sites and areas are no longer available for collecting. Therefore, many of my offerings are of special importance, as they are now rarely available to the public. Since Mr. Lee’s death, a few years ago, the collection has slowly been liquidated. This fossil came from one of the last available batches sold.
