Reedops are a common fossil trilobite specimen found in Morocco, often sought after due to the fact that they are usually well preserved and are of a moderate size. These particular specimens were found at the famous Djebel Issoumour, Alnif, Morocco and are Devonian in age, dating back to between 345 to 395 million years ago. The specimens have been professionally prepped and cleaned enabling you to view the morphological details on them clearly, such as thorax segments, tail parts, eyes, head, glabella. 2 specimens are available and are between 5 and 6 cm in length, both are on a limestone matrix and will make excellent additions to any fossil collection,
Reedops are a common species of trilobite, these particular fossil specimens are of Reedops cephalote, often sought after due to their high chances of being fossilised and retaining many morphological features, these particular species were found in Devonian limestone beds of the Hamar Laghdad Formation in Djebel Issoumour, Alnif, Morocco, making them between 395 and 345 million years old. Excellent in quality, features such as the segments, eyes, tail, cephalon, glabella, etc can be easily seen without the use of magnification. The animals have been professionally prepped and cleaned, allowing for easy observation, they measure approximately 50 mm in length and 25 mm in width, based on a limestone matrix which is roughly 70x 45 mm in size. Each sample is excellent for higher education use, to exhibit the differences between trilobite species or serious collectors. They will come supplied in a card tray with an information label.
