Bargain, 2.1" Kayserops Megaspina Trilobite - Bou Lachrhal, Morocco

This is a bargain specimen of a scarce Kayserops megaspina trilobite collected at Bou Lachrhal, Morocco. In the past this trilobite has often been referred to as “Comura cometa", but it actually bears few similarities with the genus Comura.

The specimen would be 2.1" long if outstretched. There are a number of areas of shell damage, hence the bargain price.

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.
