UralichasDescription: This plate displays a rarely seen example of a trilobite found in the Ordovician deposits of Zagora, Morocco. This taxon appears to be related to the much larger Uralichas hispanicus tardus (up to 66 cm), but since there are never any examples found intermediate in size it is most likely not a juvenile of that species, but rather potentially something new. It is quite complete, with only minor portions of the exoskeleton missing. I have only seen one other specimen to date. The brick red color makes this one stand out well when compared to the beige matrix, making for a striking presentation.
