Spinodontochile Phacopid Moroccan TrilobitesDescription: A elegant example of a member of the Order Phacopida, Family Dalmanitidae with many fine details present. While this one is similar to the trilobite Zilchovaspis rgosa, often termed Odontochile, it is a different genus. Where Zilchovaspis displays rugosities (bumps) on the thorax, this one has more pronounced ones. Indeed , the describer chose to make this distinction by using spine in both the genus as species names of this dramatic taxon.
