FO413 Trilobite

FO413 Trilobite


Here is something different for the fossil collector.  This is a larger, above average quality, fossilized Trilobite from Morocco. The species is Phacops from 430 to 360 million years ago.  The Trilobite measures 4 3/8″ long x 2 3/4″ wide.  The matrix overall measures approximately 4 5/8″ x almost 4 1/8″ x nearly 2 3/4″.  Close inspection does show some minor repairs and is reflected in our price. A very nice fossil.

Trilobites are hard-shelled, segmented members of Arthropoda and the class Trilobita that existed throughout almost all of the Paleozoic era, flourishing in the earlier part of it and slowly declining in the later part. The most common trilobites were about 2-7 cm (1-3.5 in) in length, but over their long history they ranged in size from 1 mm-72 cm (.04 in-28 in) and exhibited so much variation that they are classified into nine (or possibly ten) orders with more than 15,000 species. The smallest species are presumed to have been part of the free floating plankton, while the more common, mid-sized species probably walked along the sea floor filtering mud to obtain food, and the larger varieties may have been swimming predators.
