Submitter notes: This dual speciman shows a large adult & smaller trilobite. They are in the same layer & it would be nice to think of 'Mom & Baby' but the association may not be close at all. Clearly they were killed very quickly as they have not really started to enroll as this species often is found. This was self collected in Sylvania but prepared by Scott Vergiels of our 'Friends' who has prepared most of the trilobites I have posted. Sorry I'm old fashioned & these are still 'Phacops' to me.
