Bigotinids belong to the earliest and least understood trilobite families. Their early occurrence "out of the nowhere" in the Moroccan Anti-Atlas and in Siberia! Is one of the biggest trilobite puzzles." Bigotinops dangeardi: in 2019, Geyer wrote that "Only one specimen is known from Hupé's original publications. Very few have been found last three years and the possible robust determination of this individual to the species level makes it one amazing discovery.

Consult this and more about the Souss-Lagerstätte specimens at our website (mediterranic followed for the commercial extension). Top grade plate of a rare species.
Complete internal mould, dorsal exoskeleton, partially eroded on the posterior segments of the central lobe. The glabella characteristics, the number of thoracic segments, the small size and the presence of one genal spine a non-seen characteristic in Bigotinoids before! , indicate that we are in the presence of one yet immature individual.A more than rare fossil record. In general, the specimen is well preserved, showing almost all the key structures of the species. Good size for a complete specimen of this age and of this species. Cephalon is typical of immature individuals. Plectrum in front of the glabella distinct, palpebral lobes relatively short, their posterior tips not reaching to posterior border furrow.
Interocular areas are similar to a quarter-segment of a circle. Complete thorax on right and left lobes.
Missing posterior segments on the central lobe. Very conspicuous pleurae with evident well-preserved pleural spines. Non-evident axial furrows, maybe due to the poor preservation of the majority of the central lobe. A very well-preserved specimen on its whole.
Due to its rarity, this is one truly excellent collector item. Consult this and more about the Souss-Lagerstätte specimens at our website. See other interesting Bigotinoids Trilobites listings. See other interesting Cambrian Trilobites listings.
