Trilobite fossil cast reproduction Dikelocephalus minnesotensis

Species: Dikelocephalus minnesotensis

Find Location: Dells Area, Wisconsin

Upper Cambrian

Trilobites are most likely three lobed arthropods and consist of more than 10,000 different species. Trilobites have segmented bodies that could be completely enrolled to protect their soft underbellies, much like today's insect called a "rollie pollie". Trilobites appear to have had great vision, in fact most have several thousand eye lenses. Remains are plentiful and have been discovered on every continent, curiously larger species are found in Africa and Europe where smaller specimens of the same species are found in North America. Complete trilobites are rare and prized by collectors and paleontologists alike.

Trilobite Tuesday 

Trilobite means three lobes, and their exoskeletons are divided into-you guessed it!-three parts lengthwise. The middle (axial) lobe protected the digestive system while the outer (pleural) lobes are where the legs attached.

This specimen shows that these animals are also divided into three major sections, starting with the head (cephalon) then the accordion-looking thorax, pygidium bringing up the rear.

This now-extinct group of marine arthropods roamed the oceans for years. Simple but successful.
