Odontopleura markhamiDescription: A very good quality specimen of this rare Australian trilobite. This one retains the free cheeks, which are not commonly preserved attached. A few of the spines on the right side of the thorax and pygidium are missing. This specimen will have much better presence when in hand, as it is difficult to photograph.
