Cruziana (Ichnofossils)
Trilobite Tracks

Ouzina, Morocco, North Africa

Lower Ordovician Period - 445 Million Years Old

Cruziana : 4.35 x 0.7 in.
Plate : 5.1 x 5.6 in.
1 inch = 2.54 cm

A wonderfully colorful plate with a very fine detailed trilobite track way running across the center of the slab.

Found often near the fossils of the trilobite Asaphellus aff. fezouataensis, it is thought these trace and burrows are from that trilobite.

These ichnofossils (trace fossils) show a snapshot of life 445 million years ago. Rusophycus (Trilobite resting nest), Cruziana (trackways furrowing/emerging), & Diplichnites (walking/striding) ichnofossils - trace fossils - are all present on the various plates. Even some non-trilobite tracks on a couple - worms and even other arthropods.
