Neltneria termieri Trilobite Early CambrianDescription: This plate displays a fine example of a member of the order Redlichiida known as Neltneria termieri. ComingIssafen Formation from the Issafen Formation deposits of Morocco, it is firmly placed in the Early Cambrian. Recent interest in Issafen trilobites has led to increased digging in the region, with stunning specimens such as this the result. With only minimal restoration to the left genal, this is a very good example of the taxon.
