Rare, 1.15" Lichid (Parvilichas) Trilobite - Tinzouline, Morocco

This is a rare, 1.15" long example of a small lichid (Parvilichas marochii) trilobite from the Fezouata Formation of Morocco. Parvilichas is similar to the monster lichid trilobite Uralichas but differs in that it is much smaller with proportionally larger eyes and longer genal spines. This example is about average size for the species and the preparation is excellent.
