Flexicalymene granulosa Trilobite

This picture shows what appears to be a Flexicalymene granulosa trilobite fossil. It was found in the Kope Formation (Eden Group) of Carroll County, Kentucky, USA. It dates to the Ordovician Period. This trilobite differs from the Flexicalymene meeki in that has a smooth surface on the cephalon while the F. granulosa has a gritty surface texture.
