23" Large Asaphid Trilobite Mortality Plate - Impressive Display

This is an impressive, 23 x 25.5" mass mortality plate of large Asaphid trilobites (Ogyginus sp?). It is Lower Ordovician in age and was collected from the Zagora area in Morocco. There are 4 complete trilobites on the plate with the largest measuring about 9.7" long. It is not a composite and has only about 2-3% restoration.

This impressive display comes with a display stand but we can add a backing and wall mounting hardware upon request.

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.
