Here is a 3,12" long, phacopid trilobite (Morocconites malladoides) quarried from the deposits near Ofaten, Morocco. This member of the Phacopida trilobites has a very defining feature, a long pointed rostrum (snout) coming off of its head. It's unclear what purpose this rostrum would have served, but it could have potentially been used to help it dig through the mud.
