.9" Bubble Nose Actinopeltis Trilobite - Rare Species

 
 
 
 
This is a very unusual trilobite from Morocco which you rarely see for sale. It's an Actinopeltis globosus, which it's distinctive, very bulbous glabella. The specimen is .9" long and nicely inflated.

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.
