Selenopeltis Morocco Lichida Trilobite Description: This plaque houses a fine trilobite called Selenopeltis longispinus. I am unsure whether the name is accurate as the ones typically termed longispinus have somewhat different pleural spines.. In all likelihood it is unnamed. In the past trilobites from Morocco were taken to Europe where they often were assigned names of local species. For the sake of argument let us call this one Selenopeltis aff longispinus until such time as Moroccan trilobites can be sorted out.
