Description

Presented here is a positive/negative outstanding lucky split from the Kaid Errami quarry, showing a beautiful dead assemblage of three (3) trilobites - 2 Declivolithus titan and 1 partial Cyclopyge sibilla - and some other fossilized small parts of non-trilobites. The Declivolithus trilobites have died ventrally attached to one another and in reverse positions, showing both their ventral and dorsal exoskeleton structures. A beautiful plate enhancing a piece of Natural History: the moment of death of a group of trilobites in the Ordovician seas. A dramatic beautiful and educational scene.

It is thought that these benthic animals with particularly strongly fused free checks, used the seafloor to mold. It would be less dangerous than in the open sea and the friction with the sediments will turn the sloughing of the free checks easier. Also, the absence of holaspids in these layers might mean that the species occupied different habitats over its ontogeny.
