Trilobites were among the first arthropods in the world. They represent a phylum of hard shelled creatures with multiple body segments and jointed legs. They make up an extinct class of arthropods (Trilobita), that includes over 15,000 species.

It has been reported that, in the Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountain region of Morocco, four or five new species are discovered every year. This area is considered to be the most diverse and richest source of these ancient sea creatures in the world.

Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Arthropoda, Class: Trilobita, Order: Phacopida, Suborder: Cheirurina, Family: Cheiruridae, Species: Crotalocephalus, Genus: gibbus.

Trilobites prepared in this manner (not flat against the matrix) are said to be in the flying position. This is a more difficult preparation process and therefore they command a higher price. This is one of the best prepped specimens for this species that I have seen (flat or flying).

This specimen is being offered from a private collection!
