Trilobites were a highly diverse and successful group of bottom dwelling marine arthropods. They lived during the Paleozoic Era and roamed the oceans for 270 million years. So far, over 20,000 species of trilobites have been identified, and they play a valuable role to geologists as they help determine the age of the rocks in which they are discovered.

This Drotops megalomanicus specimen is beautifully preserved in the matrix. The Drotops species is known to be larger than most other trilobite species, making them excellent specimens for displaying! The white marks on the matrix are added for aesthetic purposes. Stand not included.
