Enrolled Asaphus Trilobite

Product description

This is a wonderful Asaphus expansus, enrolled trilobite, discovered in Ljungsbro, Sweden.

It dates from the Middle Ordovician, 470 to 458 million years old.

Many trilobites were able to enroll to protect themselves from imminent danger. They would watch until the danger had passed, and then unroll again.

Trilobites ("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 of Proetida, died out.
The last of the trilobites disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian about 250 million years ago.

This is an absolutely outstanding specimen, in perfect condition.

Not to be missed by the serious collector.
