TRILOBITE FOSSILS

A great example of a group of four Phacops Trilobite Fossils on a Limestone matrix.  Trilobites are extinct arthropods.  Their black colour is due to the chemical processes affecting the rock, causing the animals to petrify entirely.  Their habitat was salt water.

Age:  Lower Devonian, Approx 350 million years old.

Location:
Hamar L’aghdad Limestone deposits of Djbel Issoumour, Moroccan Sahara.

Dimensions:
20.2cm x 22.5cm x 7.2cm, 3350g.  Largest Trilobite 12cm x 7cm x 2.6cm.

Trilobite Phacops.

Phacops is a genus of trilobite in the order Phacopida, family Phacopidae. They lived in Europe, northwestern Africa, North America and China from the early until the very end of the Devonian. It was a rounded animal, with a globose head and large eyes, and probably fed on detritus. Phacops is often found rolled up, a biological defense mechanism that is widespread among smaller trilobites but nearly perfected in this genus.  Approx 350 million years old.
