Pseudocybele nasutaDescription: Here is a superbly-preserved Ordovician trilobite from Nevada known as Psudocybele nasuta. The state is far better known for its panoply of Cambrian trilobites, with those from the Ordovician far less frequently offered. It is completely articulated and quite 3-D in appearance, an exceptional example of this uncommon trilobite. Few examples will be found to equal this incredible specimen.
