Reedops TRILOBITES (Three) Fossil Morocco 390 Million Years old #1916 20o
This is a nice group of 3 Reedops Trilobites from Morocco, North Africa. The largest trilobite measures approximately 2 inches in length, and the 2 smaller ones measure 1 1/4 inches. These trilobites date back to the Devonian time period approximately 390 million years ago. A lot of trilobites are just found as partials and then they sculpt and paint the rest, which is very common. That does not appear to be the case with this piece as it appears to be all original. Another thing to be aware of with these trilobites - the way these trilobites are recovered is by breaking the rock and looking for something inside. If they find evidence of a trilobite inside, they will glue the rock back together and then prep out the trilobite. That's how they are able to get such well preserved specimens.

It's the fact that they are encapsulated in rock that preserves their great detail. So there may be those types of repairs present. This is a great fossil for any collection!

Meaning "three lobes" are a well-known fossil group of extinct. The first appearance of trilobites in the fossil record defines the base of the Atdabanian.

Stage of the Early Cambrian. , and they flourished throughout the lower Paleozoic. Era before beginning a drawn-out decline to extinction when, during the Devonian.

Almost all trilobite orders, with the sole exception of Proetida. Trilobites finally disappeared in the mass extinction.

At the end of the Permian. The trilobites were among the most successful of all early animals, roaming the oceans for over 270 million years.

When trilobites first appeared in the fossil record they were already highly diverse and geographically dispersed. Because trilobites had wide diversity and an easily fossilized. An extensive fossil record was left behind, with some 17,000 known species spanning Paleozoic. The study of these fossils has facilitated important contributions to biostratigraphy.

Trilobites are often placed within the arthropod. Subphylum Schizoramia within the superclass Arachnomorpha. Are found in the literature.

Trilobites had many life styles; some moved over the sea-bed. Most life styles expected of modern marine arthropods are seen in trilobites, with the possible exception of parasitism.

(where there is still scientific debate). Some trilobites particularly the family Olenidae. Are even thought to have evolved a symbiotic. Relationship with sulfur-eating bacteria from which they derived food.
