1.9" Adrisiops Weugi Trilobite - New Phacopid Species

 
 
 
This is a 1.9" long (if outstretched), outstretched specimen of Adrisiops weugi, a fairly new species of phacopid from Morocco. It has a distinctive bulging glabella covered in large tubercles. 1-2% shell restoration along the repaired cracks.

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.
