Reedops Trilobite

Product description

This is an outstanding specimen of the trilobite, Reedops cephalotes, disovered in Alnif, Morocco.

It dates from the Devonian Period, 360 million years old.



The trilobite is beautifully presented on the original matrix.


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 will make a neat addition to a collection, or a very unusual gift.
