Geesops sparsinodosus gallicus (STRUVE)

Assise de Bure, Lower Middeldevon

Vireux-Molhain, France

Width of the cephalon about 1.7 cm

The phacopid trilobites with their remarkable eyes are some of the most interessting trilobites because of their extraordinary visual system. There exist ideas that they lived as bottom dwellers - skipping like many small crustaceans today over the sea-ground or burrowing in the mud to search for something to eat.
