Two Rare Apatokephalus Trilobites With Asaphellus - Fezouata Formation

This is a fantastic multiple plate with a pair of rare Apatokephalus trilobites associated with a pair of Asaphellus. These trilobites are from the the Fezouata Formation in the Zagora Area of Morocco. Apatokephalus is a remopleurid trilobite that has a long spine coming off the axial ring on one of its last segments.

An acrylic and metal display stand will accompany your purchase. There is some restoration to the dorsal spines of the underlying Apatokephalus trilobite.

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.
