Notes
This trilobite has robust eye stalks, proportionately longer than those for Asaphus punctatus. These Asaphus trilobites are fairly common and inexpensive, so don't usually get the extreme care in preparation that the $1000+ trilobites get. Despite this, the right eye has surprisingly good preservation, with many of the lenses of the holochroal eyes visible.
