Description Technical Specs Extended Information
This Cyclopyge trilobite is a very rare trilobite fossil. We are not sure of the exact species but the order is Asaphida. It comes from an area near Alnif, Morocco. This trilobite dates from the Lower Ordovician, namely 470 million years ago. The unique thing about this particular specimen is that it has eyes. The eye on the right side is large and prominent. These are thought to be floating trilobites, actively swimming on the surface using their eyes to look down on to the bottom of the ocean floor.

The Cyclopyge measures 0.55 inches long (its pygidium is tucked down, but still visible) and 0.4 inches wide. The matrix measures 3.0 inches long, 3.45 inches wide and 1.0 inches high. There is a second cephalon on the plate, but without eyes.
