Trilobite - En matriz - Morocconites malladoides - 70×25×13 mm
DEVÓNICO (358,9 – 419,2 millones de años) - Marruecos

Beautifully prepared trilobite with the scientific name: Morocconites malladoides. This is one of the more unusual types of the Devonian from Morocco. Morocconites is a relative of Phacopida and is characterized by a spine (rostrum) to its head. It is not entirely clear what the purpose of this spine was, but it may have helped it to burrow into the mud easier. This trilobite comes from the Hamar Laghdad Limestone formation from the Devonian strata near the town of Ofaten in the South of Morocco. The dimensions of the trilobite are 70 mm x 25 mm. The matrix measures 8.4 x 5.7 cm. Brought from my last trip to Morocco in April 2018.
