3.2" Kayserops megaspina Trilobite - Bou Lachrhal, Morocco

 
 
 
 
This is 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.

This specimen is 3.2" long, laid out perfectly prone and well prepared. Excellent shell restoration and just a few small spots of 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 with over 25k described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left a excellent fossil record.
