Hi Folks

I recent aquired this somewhat battered item supposedly from Morocco 375Ma.

I think that it might be Phacops?

Any ideas

Pete

Yeah, I think you're right that it may be a Phacops.

Hi fossielenheerser

You may well be right, the original pics were from the seller.

The attached pics are mine.

Sorry about that.

Regards to all.

Pete

Hello Skorpion,

i think i wasn't very clear. The first pictures are from a complete different trilobite then the last one of your first message. For example, the piece or rock on his head of the last picture isn't on the head of the first few pictures.

The back of the first trilobite is hollow (i hope i spelled it right) and the back of the other trilo form the last picture is a little round (don't know how to say it different ).

And the trilobite of your picture is in the centre, the one from your first message is on the side.

I just noticed
