Huntonia lindenensis? Trilobite Cephalon

A cephalon of a Huntonia lindenensis? trilobite found in western Tennessee.  The fossil was found in the Birdsong Formation of the Lower Devonian Period.  It appear to be a molt as the eye lens on one side are covered with a bryozoan.  The molt must have been exposed on the seafloor for a while for this colony to establish.

Thanks to Herb for letting me photograph it.
