ECTILLAENUS - ORDOVICIAN, SHROPSHIRE.


Ectillaenus perovalis Murchison 1839.

3D outstretched Trilobite on brown shale matrix. Ectillaenids were essentially 'burrowing' trilobites and their smooth cephalon and pygidium is an adaptation to that life mode. The eyes are tiny. Lovely example. Nice detail of 'terracing' on the pygidium under magnification.

Ordovician, Lower Llanvirn Series, Abereiddian Stage.
Hop Shale Formation, Leigh, Shropshire.

Trilobite : 5cm. long.
