Eccaparadoxides TrilobiteDescription: This striking trilobite is a member of the genus Eccaparadides (some prefer to use Paradoxides). The members of the family Pardoxididae are known from North America, Europe, and North Africa, and houses some of the largest known trilobites. They are thought to have been predators, and by virtue of their size had few competitors other than others of their own kind. These dramatic trilobites are popular with collectors, but most (particularly the large ones) are highly restored composites. This small example is essentially complete, and quite reminiscent of its relatives in China in morphology.
