3.1" Early Cambrian Psedosaukianda Trilobite - Morocco

 
 
 
 
In the past couple of years, deposits near Issafen, Morocco have begun yielding a new assemblage of Early Cambrian trilobites. This is a large example of one, which is currently being called Psedosaukianda lata. There is a narrow and wide type of this trilobite, this is the wider variety. The wider specimens come from a horizon about 30m above the narrower specimens. More research is needed to determine if they are in fact distinct species or the difference in length/width ratio is due to trilobite size or differences in compression during fossilization.

There is a small amount of surface restoration to the left cheek of the trilobite.
