This trilobite mortality plate is from the Ordovician of Oklahoma. Trilobites are very well-known, and possibly the second-most famous fossil group after the dinosaurs with some 15,000 known species. Trilobites are extinct arthropods that form the class Trilobita. They appeared at the start of the Cambrian period and flourished throughout the lower Paleozoic era before beginning a drawn-out decline to extinction when the last of the trilobites disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian 250 million years ago. The trilobite body is divided into three major sections, a cephalon with eyes, mouth parts and sensory organs such as antennae, a thorax of multiple similar segments (that in some species allowed enrollment), and a pygidium, or tail section.
