Cryptolithus Trilobite Diagram

Here is a quick rendition of a Cryptolithus trilobite from the Ordovician Period. I needed to make a label for a fossil I was sending out. I took some artistic license with holes in the lace collar, the deformed glabella, and the warped looking thorax segments. Probably when digitally composing a trilobite, it is a good idea to do either the right or left half and then reflect it along the y-axis.

Dalmanites selenurus

A Dalmanites selenurus from the Waldron Shale. It is was possibly found in Waldron, Indiana.
