1.3" Bubble-Nose Actinopeltis Trilobite With Calymene

This is a rare, bubble-nosed Actinopeltis trilobite from Jbel Ougnate, Morocco. It is naturally associated with a 2.1" Calymene trilobite inside of a concretion. there is about 10% restoration on the Actinopeltis, mainly along the left hand side of thorax and tail.

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.
