2.2" Detailed Hollardops Trilobite With Morocops

This is a beautiful association of two different species of trilobites from the Lower Devonian deposits near Ofaten, Morocco. There is a 2" long Hollardops preserved next to a similarly sized Morocops. Both of the trilobites have natural, multi-toned shell colorations. Excellent preparation with about 2% restoration 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: 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.
