Thysanopeltella Styginid Moroccan TrilobiteDescription: This trilobite comes from a relatively new location known as Jorf. It has become the source for many new and colorful trilobites over the past few years, and this one is no exception. It is most like Thysaniopeltella kebbelecensis, but although the number of pygidial spines are similar, the number of pygidial ribs are essentially double. It is most likely a ne wspecies, as are many of the trilobites from Jorf. Much work needs to be done to catch up with all the new material that has been found there over the past few years.
