Trilobite Mortality Plate ID

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I purchased this trilobite mortality plate a few months ago, but I haven't gotten the chance to get an ID yet.

All the info I have on it is that it was collected near Tafraoute, Morocco and is from an Ordovician formation. (not sure which one)

They are all about an inch and unfortunately most of the heads are not preserved great. I can provide bette r pictures if needed. Thanks! :D
