1.8" Wide, Enrolled Pedinopariops Trilobite

This is a 1.8" wide, enrolled specimen of Pedinopariops (Hypsipariops) vagabundus from Mrakib, Morocco. It has been completely removed from the limestone it was found in and has nice eye facet preservation. It has about 3% shell restoration along repaired cracks.

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: over 25,000 species have been described, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to their hard exoskeletons (shells), they left an excellent fossil record.
