Trinucleid indet

Trilobites Order Asaphida Suborder Asaphina, Superfamily Trinucleioidea, Family Uncertain, but perhaps Asataspididae
Geologic Age: Upper Cambrian to Lower Ordovician
Trilobite is 75 mm long
Jebel Saghrou, Morocco
Remarks: This is an undescribed species from asaphid Superfamily Trincleioidea, and a large trilobite at that. For sure it is a primitive version among trinuceids. Note the presence of a typical occipital spine is noted, but the absence of pitting on the cephalic ring, a trait that evolved later.
