Platyscutellum Moroccan TrilobiteDescription: This trilobite is a member of the Order Corynexochida, Family Styginidae known is Platyscutellum. It is distinguished by lack of fringing pygidial spines from Thysanopeltis, and from Scutellum by the raised ribbing of the pygidium. It is further differentiated from Scabriscutellum in that it has a concave rather than convex cephalic rim. Its dark exoskeleton contrasts well with lighter matrix, and displays well in this prone pose. Notice the presence of fine eye facets.
