Isotelus Pygidium and Hypostoma

Here are two pieces of Isotelus Ordovician Period trilobite. I think my cousin found this in Carroll County, Kentucky in the Kope Formation.

I should have gotten some sort scale on the image. What attracted me to this fossil was the fragment of line texture still preserved on the hypostoma ("mouth plate" or food scoop).
