Cryptolithus trilobite from Swatara Gap

A Cryptolithus trilobite from Swatara Gap, Pennsylvania. Many years ago, you could find trilobite fossils at a roadside borrow pit in PA. This site has long been closed, but it was the first time I had found a trilobite and I remember how excited I was. I never found a great specimen, but this strange little Ordovician animal remains a favorite. Plus, it has a cool name.
