Name: Crotalocephalina (Crotalocephalus) gibbus (Trilobites)
Trilobite Order Phacopida, Family Cheiruridae
Location: Alnif , Morocco
Elegant example of a member of the Order Phacopida, Family Cheiruridae with many fine details present. The describer of this one thought it bore a resemblance to the head of a rattlesnake (Crotalus), hence the genus name. The name has changed several times, from Crotalocephalus to Crotalocephalina, and recently to Cheirurus, making it hard for the layman to keep up. Whatever you care to call it, this one will make a fine addition to any collection.
