1.4" Spiny Koneprusia Trilobite - Ofaten, Morocco

 
 
 
 
 
This is a 1.4" long Koneprusia trilobite from Ofaten, Morocco. Nearly all of the spines have been prepared free standing and the trilobite, left "flying" on a pedestal of limestone creating a very spectacular display.

It's a impressive looking specimen, but many of the spines appear to be composites from another specimen, hence the lower price.

Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet with over 25k described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left a excellent fossil record.
