More Trilobites Found That Day
With this many Flexicalymene trilobites, we were
bound to find a few of their burrows, called Rusophycus.
Fragments of Isotelus trilobites
were also found in good numbers. They littered the ground as shown in the next
The next shot shows the genal spine and genal area of the Isotelus.
Next we see the Isotelus fragment in the middle, surrounded
with a whole Flexicalymene, crinoid stems (including the one with the 5-sided
star pattern from a
Cincinnaticrinus pentagonus) and other fragments.
I know this section is about the trilobites found, but while
I'm describing crinoid stems, here's a big batch found that day.

The specimen below is multiple thorax segments of the Isotelus.
The Isotelus has eight thorax segments.
