stocking Russian trilobite fossils:
the Ordovician, what is now Eastern Europe and Western Russia
was a shallow inland sea. The fauna was rich and diverse, and
included a large assemblage of trilobite invertebrates,
as the early vertebrates. This was the heart of the age of
the trilobite, a time when trilobites were not only diverse,
had undergone adaptations yielding striking morphologies.
trilobites of Russia, and specifically those coming from
region near Saint Petersburg, are among those most cherished
by collectors. The reasons are several, their exotic forms,
superb preservation, and availablity.
