Super display Burmeisterella Trilobite
A1 top quality specimen
Intact spine on the pygidium
Absolutely first quality Burmeisterella Trilobite, dating from the Devonian Period, 420m to 358m years old. It was discovered in Alnif, Morocco.
The trilobite is complete with pygidial spine.
It is supported on a column of its original matrix.
Trilobites, or three lobes, are extinct arthropods that form the class Trilobita. They appeared in the Middle Cambrian epoch, and flourished throughout the Lower Paleozoic Era, before beginning a drawn out decline to extinction, when, during the Late Devonian extinction, all trilobite orders, with the sole exception or Proetida, died out.
The last of the Trilobites disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian, 250 million years ago.
This is a rare, and very large specimen of Burmeisterella, and not to be missed.
It is perfect for display, and sensibly priced.
