Two Huge Spiny Trilobites and Starfish, At 7 inches and 6 inches these two complete well detailed Selenopeltis bucchi trilobites are very large for spiny trilobites in. The 3-D detail is phenomenal with its small eyes, distinctive body bumps and delicate spines being clear with even small details defined. What makes this 22 x 17 inch limestone slab so special is the presence of four complete large ophiuroid brittle starfish up to 6 inches in diameter plus two partial brittlestars are found in their natural positions from their burial in the warm Ordovician seas of Erfoud, Morocco over 475 million years ago. This is an esthetically pleasing natural grouping that illustrates what type of sea creatures were present together in the ancient 475 million year old ocean.
