Wenlock
I would say it is possibly the actual trilobite, the moulted body shell is
usually disturbed or disarticualted in some way after the moulting process

Wenlock



A
Trilobite in a Cephalopod shell

 

When
I collected this specimen, the end of the Cephalopod popped off revealing the
trilobite Ectillaenus perovalis, it looks like the trilobite was inside the
Cephalopod shell, possibly using it as a shelter for protection. Collected from
the Ordovician Llanvirn series rocks of Shropshire
