Description
Large Trilobite - incredible preparation on original matrix - Crotalocephalus
Devonian - Morocco

An incredible Crotalocephalus gibbus trilobite, of the order Phacopidea, discovered in Haman Laghdad, Morocco.

It dates from the Devonian Period, 360 million years old

Typically these trilobites have eyes low down on the sides of the cephalon, a large, bulbous glabella, and dagger-like projections on the ends of the pleura.

The preparation is superb, and you would be hard pushed to find one of similar quality. Even the underside of the head is prepared.
It is on a stem of matrix in "swimming position".

Size: Trilobite 8 cm long
