1.15" Cornuproetus Trilobite - Fine Preparation

This is a beautifully prepared, 1.15" long Cornuproetus trilobite from Morocco. Nice and inflated with great shell detail. Some shell restoration on the left hand side of the tail along the repaired crack, about 2% in total.

Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25k currently described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left an excellent fossil record.
