    Crotalocephalus Gibbus Trilobite 101mm

    £484.00
    Crotalocephalus Gibbus Trilobite 101mm, professionally prepared the matrix (fossil bedrock layer), having been removed from the sedimentary rock of the once fossil bed, thus revealing the prehistoric arthropods exoskeleton, this fossil arthropod was part of the invertebrate group. The naturally contemporaneous Devonian limestone silt may have been this individuals demise. It is believed underwater landslips were commonly caused and that many trilobites were suddenly caught in and covered over being trapped in the anoxic silt, victims of an anaerobic environment, the lack of oxygen not beneficial for life, was beneficial for the process of quickly and successful fossilisation, aiding petrification and retarding bacterial growth. So that the animals body parts were preserved. Genus: Crotalocephalus Gibbus. (Crotalocephalina). Age: Palaeozoic era,Early Devonian period, Pragian stage 411 to 408 million years ago.

    Drotops Megalomanicus Trilobite 138mm

    £792.00
    Drotops Megalomanicus Trilobite 138mm. This fossil trilobite can still unveil a story of its evolution through the complex schizochroal eye, as multi compound eyes stand up from the cephalon, filled with a multitude of convex lenses, which were made up of the mineral calcite this having endured the test of time in its taphonomic state. Trilobites melted their exoskeleton or carapace, these carapaces are often found enrolled, like a defensive ball. This genus Drotops grew exceptionally large, larger than most Phacops genera for which it has a close resemblance. A relatively recently named and classified discovery from the fossil beds of Morocco. Genus: Drotops Megalomanicus. (Phacops Rana Africanus). Age: Paleozoic Era, Middle Devonian, Eifelian stage, approximately 390 million years. Origin: Region of Daya el Maider, Nr Tafraoute Sidi Ali, Djebel Issimour, Alnif, Morocco North Africa.

The natural fossil exoskeleton, the carapace, prepared in a professional Laboratory, revealing the wonderfully preserved remains of an exceptional and ancient arthropod. Seemingly prone in a defensive mode over the limestone matrix which once encased it, the limestone tomb was probably the result of a rapid smothering of silt from an underwater disturbance of some magnitude. Genus: Walliserops Hammi (described by Chatterton) Age: Palaeozoic era, Devonian 417 to 354 million years ago. Origin: Emsian, Timrhanrhart Formation, Foum Zguid, Morocco, North Africa.
