Here is an extremely interesting trilobite specimen from Europe. This is a nice multiple example of Placoparia tournemini from the Ordovician of Portugal. Multiple specimens of this trilobite are quite unusual. The trilobites on this block are completely natural - no compositing has been done. The trilobites are quite prone and most are nicely articulated. These colorful bugs are inflated and preserve fine detail. The fossils are slightly compressed, laterally, due to the metamorphism of the strata in which they are found. Many times, the trilobites from these layers are terribly distorted - not so with these. The trilobites are wonderfully presented on the large, semi-rectangular block of matrix. This is a very attractive multiple specimen of Placoparia from Portugal.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
