Illaneus Trilobite

Product description

An Illianus sp trilobite, discovered in Erfoud, Morocco.

It dates from the Ordovician Period, 488 to 444 million years old.

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 in reasonable condition, and a good addition to a collection.
