Very Rare Bathyuriscus formosus Trilobite from Montana
Order Corynexochida, Family Dolichometopidae
Time: Middle Cambrian
is 31 mm
Meagher Shale, Horseshoe Hills, by Manhattan, Montana
This Bathyuriscus formosus
was collected back in the 1970s or 1980s. The specimen is just
about perfect. It has beautiful skin, with all the spines clearly
defined. The free cheeks are tightly attached.
Be sure to take special note of the axial nodes present. Trilobites
from Montana are seldom found. The same genus is found in the
Marjum Formation of Utah as Bathyuriscus fimbriatus.
