Homotelus bromidensis TrilobitesDescription: These plates were relatively common a number of years ago. But, like many other fossil specimens, they are readily available while the site is active, and then rapidly become hard to find. These are now becoming hard to find. I was also recently informed that these multi-plates take an enormous amount of time to prepare. The specimens are normally buried within a very hard limestone matrix. Note the nice light chocolate color against the muted yellow background matrix.
