"Welcome home to one of the rarest trilobites in the world. Thanks to a gift by Robert Hazen, this fossil of a new Apianurus species is now a part of the Museum's collection. This beautiful fossil was discovered by paleontologist Jake Skabelund in 2011 at the Walcott-Rust Quarry in New York." --Deep Time at the Smithsonian Facebook Page:
