Hamar Laatchana, Alnif , Morocco
Remarks: Though Spinodontochile is similar to the Zilchovaspis
rugosa, which is often called Odontochile, it is a different genus.
Where Zilchovaspis displays rugosities (bumps) on the thorax, this
spines instead. This one is a prime exampleof the excellent preparation
coming out of Morocco with the availability of reliable electricity.
Fine example of modern Moroccan
spinifer trilobite Schizochroal
