An excellent specimen of this difficult species to obtain. Almost all specimens show some missing parts, which is perfectly normal at this strata, due to its geological nature, full of iron oxides.

OBJECT On the original matrix. SCIENTIFIC NAME Selenopeltis gallica - Ordovician, Morocco. The Fezouata Shale has been compared to the very well know Burgess Shale, in North America. In fact, it is, in late years, a prolific area in fossil discoveries that changed the fossil taxonomy of several groups of organisms and that helped better to understand the evolution of all the life on Earth. Not only several trilobite species have been newly documented there: some other Arthropods (like the famous Anomalocarids), soft-bodied creatures like this.
And Echinoderms are other important groups found and studied there, among thousands of species. Besides the intrinsic value of this specimen, as a piece of Natural History, you are acquiring a rare item, whose preparation (in specialized laboratories using micro tools) is a difficult task that takes dozens of hours and needs skills.
