Olenellid Trilobite

An essentially complete olenellid trilobite I collected from the Lower Cambrian Saline Valley Formation, Waucoba Spring geologic section, Inyo County, California, before the area was assimilated into Death Valley National Park. Note that the glabella is slighly crushed, unfortunately. Called scientifically Mesonacis fremonti.
