Homotelus bromidensis Oklahoma Trilobites for SaleDescription: This plaque shows 2 near complete and 3 partial examples of trilobite Homotelus bromidensis in association. They were overcome by a slumping wall of sediment, most likely during a storm. Currently, researchers believe such associations were the result of aggregations due to breeding behavior, much like the horseshoe crabs of today. Such association plates were relatively common some years ago, but have become increasing difficult to obtain today.
