    Ordovician fossil ID

    Good day Can you help with the ID of this fossil from the Ordovician of Fezouata formation, Morocco. Cheers Malek
  3. Acquired one in 2018, which I believe it should be a Calvapilosa kroegeri, or the 'armored worm'. Any ideas on this ID? Related link: https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/feb/06/newly-discovered-slug-looks-like-a-hairy-toe-and-could-reveal-the-ancestry-of-molluscs-calvapiloa-kroegeri

    rare fossils Fezouata Morocco

    Two very rare Ordovician fossils from the Fezouata Formation of Morocco. Any ideas?
  5. Hello guys, so this specimen came up on the internet for sale. It is apparently a Aegirocassis benmoulai from the one and only Fezouata formation in the Draa Valley in Morocco. I am not trained with dealing with these types of specimens but what are the chances it is the real deal/thing??

    Oldest Starfish Fossil

    Fezouata Mystery.........

    Hello, friends. Can anyone give me a helping hand identifying this, please? Not the Asaphellus trilobite, but the other object. This is Moroccan Fezouata, so Early Ordovician. Notice the thoracic segments curve the opposite way to most trilobites. It is convex on both sides, though seemingly a bit flattened. It has a 'flange' on one side of the anterior and presumably had one on the other side. Bit of a trilo? Aglaspid? Xiphosurid? Some sort of echinoderm? Any guesses most welcome. Thank you very much. Scale here in inches :
  8. A type of Paleoscolecid worm, not described yet. Related link: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299613058_Palaeoscolecid_worms_from_the_Lower_Ordovician_Fezouata_Lagerstatte_Morocco_Palaeoecological_and_palaeogeographical_implications
  9. Thelxiope like creature from Fezouata Shale, described by Peter Van Roy 2013. It looks very similar to the Burgess one: Thelxiope palaeothalassia LINK: https://burgess-shale.rom.on.ca/en/fossil-gallery/view-species.php?id=123
  10. Here presents probably the first complete lobopodian fossil from Fezouata Formation, it is under describing at the moment. Outline looks very similar to Luolishania + Diania from Chengjiang Biota. Truly amazing creature.
  11. YXWYX

    Thelxiope sp.

    Please refer https://burgess-shale.rom.on.ca/en/fossil-gallery/view-species.php?id=123&m=2&&ref=i for its comparison.
  12. A laterally preserved Brachyaglaspis singularis.
  13. My collection of Enosiaspis hrungnir so far: Animalia; Arthropoda; Trilobitomorpha; Trilobitoidea; Marrellomorpha; Acercostraca; Vachonisiidae Determined by: David A. Legg, 2016
  14. Here presents three rare arthropods acquired from Fezouata Shale: Brachyaglaspis singularis gen. et sp. nov., which is described in 2015 for the first time. The paper is: 'A new aglaspidid euarthropod with a six-segmented trunk from the Lower Ordovician Fezouata Konservat-Lagerstätte, Morocco'. The first shows pretty nice outline of this aglaspidid, the third one is quite crappy...Fourth picture is the reconstruction of this type.

    Fezouata Hyolithid?

    I am hoping someone on the forum might be familiar with Ordovician aged fossils from Fezouata. I believe this might be a large hyolithid but am not sure.
  16. Hello dear fellows, Any ideas about this one from Fezouata Shale? It has 2,8 x 2,0 cm. A Brachiopod, a Hyolith, a Chrondrophore, a Clam??? Thanks in advance.
  17. I don't know whether I should have put this in the ID section instead, as I'm looking for some info and for help in sorting out what I've got, but not necessarily IDs per se. But it's also a sort of show-and-tell, so here goes. The info I'm trying to sort out has to do with the locations and formation/stages of some of the items. To help, I'll post the Ordovician correlation chart from the ICS and this other one from a paper on the Valongo (Portugal) site recently posted in the Documents section, showing the known soft-bodied sites of the Ordovician... The latter seems a little too

    Fezouata formation fossils

    Good day everyone Can you please help identify these fossils? They are from the Ordovician of fezouata formation, Morocco. Thanks Malek

    Fezouata formation fossils

    Hi Can you help ID these ordovician fossils ? From Fezouata formation , Morocco. Thanks Malek
  21. A highly anticipated package has arrived from Spain. Attached below is one of two holotype casts of Kierarges morrisoni, a new trilobite genus and species named in my honor by the Great Spanish Trilobitologist: Joan Corbacho. One of the holotype casts has been donated to the University of Oregon's spectacular collection of trilobites. When Kierarges was first being described, it was thought to be a new species of Nerudaspis. Eventually all the specialists agreed this Moroccan isoteline trilobite is actually a new genus as well, giving it the special distinction of being a type species.

    Dead assemblages

    I think I see here a partial Ormathops sp. and partial Echinodermata. And maybe there is something more. This comes from a from the remains of a water hole near Alnif and can help to direct new searches. The coin as 2,3 cm = 0,9 inches diameter Any thoughts? Thanks in advance, Miguel

    Mollusc plus trilobite

    A mollusc Sinuites plus a free cheek of a trilobite. Any thoughts about the trilobite in question? Thanks in advance, Miguel

    Fezouata Trilobites

    Do you guys think there are two different species of trilobites here? The one on the left has more prominent eyes than the one on the right. I also think that the one on the left is an Asaphellus fezouataensis. Right specimen. Note how big the eyes are. Left specimen with smaller eyes.
