Timsaloproetus TrilobiteDescription: The location known as Jorf in Morocco has been a hotbed of new trilobite species for the past few years. Recently, specimens have been coming from a new site known as Fezna, some 10 km from the original site, now sometimes referred to as the Red Jorf site. This one was something of an enigma for me, so I resorted to asking one of the most well-read collectors in the US, who indicated it was a member of the genus Timsaloproetus, albeit possibly an undescribed species.
