Rare Wallacia Trilobite from NorwayDescription: Encrinurid trilobites are some of the best known of the Silurian Trilobita, and are found primarily in the Baltic Region, United Kingdom, and Canada. The genus was erected in 1978. Many are known only from incomplete material. The Norwegian material has yet to be formally described as a PhD thesis covering them in 1985 was never published, This one is essentially complete, and as such affords an excellent opportunity to help round out any trilobite collection.
