Identification and Taxonomy:

Species: Bigotinops dangeardi (Hupé, 1953); Family: Bigotinidae; Superfamily: Ellipsocephaloidea; Order: Ptychopariida; Class: Trilobita.

The systematics and identification of this clade and specimens are complex and explained below.

Lithostratigraphy: Tiout Member of the Igoudine Formation (Lower Cambrian, Series 2, Stage 3).

Age: Cambrian, Early Paleozoic Era. 521-515 million years old.

"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." (Geyer, G., 2019). Very few have been found last four years and the possible robust determination of this individual to the species level makes it one amazing discovery.


Description (main features):

A top-grade plate of a rare species. Excellent collector item.

Internal mould. Particularly beautiful and well preserved from the cephalon to pygidium, just missing some tergites, slightly eroded, mainly on the glabella. Good dorsal exoskeleton, not eroded (a very rare situation) The glabella and cranidium characteristics and the number of thoracic segments, indicate that we are in the presence of one adult 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 adult 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.


Ovoid body. Not very distinct pygidium but present.


Complete thorax on all three lobes. A truly perfect specimen.

Very conspicuous pleurae with evident well-preserved pleural spines.

A very well-preserved specimen on its whole. Due to its rarity, this is one truly excellent collector item.
