3.35" Soft-Bodied Fossil Aglaspid (Tremaglaspis) - Excellent Specimen

This is a beautifully preserved, 3.35" long Aglaspid (Tremaglaspis sp.) from the Upper Fezouata Formation of Morocco. This aglaspid has frequently been identified as Leptaglaspis schmidti in the past, but Tremaglaspis appears to be more accurate. Beautiful coloration on this specimen. There are a few repaired cracks in the rock running through the fossil.

Aglaspids are a rare type of arthropod which was probably related to trilobites. For a while was regarded as the ancestors to horseshoe crabs, though this theory has fallen out of favor.
