Harpides Museum Trilobites
Order Harpetida, Family Harpididae
Time: Lower Ordovician
mm = 1 inch): Trilobites are 67 mm long by 46 mm wide and 62 mm long
by 40 mm wide on a 190 mm by 155 mm matrix
Fezouata Formation, Zagora, Morocco
In 2010 a new undescribed Harpid was seen for the first time.
This one was found earlier this year, and is the first double
example I have come across. I have included a photograph of it
in the as found state. Once a specimen such as this has been
discovered by breaking open a matrix slab, the pieces are glued
and carefully prepared to free the specimens from the entombing
matrix. The brick-red/orange color is typical for material from
the Fezouata Formation. See my other offerings for a single Harpides specimen.
