Is this a trilobite in this conglomeration of ocean fossils?

Carlisle, PA(Zone 6b)

This is my favorite rock, full of fossils: crinoid, cephalopods, etc but one of the fossils resembles a trilobite. Let me know if I am correct on this. It looks almost like a sting ray. Oh yes, also coral on the rock. Such an interesting bunch of animals.

Here's the crinoid stem.

You'll have to post a close-up of the area that you think looks like a trilobite...

I don't see a Trilobite in the rock.

Guess I will have to use a magnifying glass cause I zoomed the dig. camera in as close as I could get using micro. Did you see that thing on the mid left on the first picture that looks like a small sting ray? That is what I am trying to figure out what it is. Thanks so much.

No trilobite on that fossil, it looks like it could be a calyx from a crinoid.

No expert but agree that what you are pointing out is not trilobite. Note - it does appear you have fragments of lace collar trilobites in the rock - look right edge at the semi-circular piece.

Find these fragments all over the N KY- Cincinnati area but never found one intact.
