Homotelus bromidensisThis plate has two large and complete and two partial Homotelus bromidensis. These plates were relatively common a number of years ago. These trilobites from this site take an enormous amount of time to prepare. The specimens are normally buried within a very hard limestone matrix. Note the nice light chocolate color against the muted yellow background matrix.
