Cool... these are like more exotic in character... i don't mind too much their small size, but think they're really beatiful. If you think about it, most bugs the size of beetles or cockroaches are rather... well... uninviting ^^

These were the size of cockroachs, too.
Except for Psychopyge (It roughly translates as "soul butt" or "soul tail" in Greek).
Adult Psychopyge got to be almost a foot in length.

Cool! I don't think I've seen any other trilobites with probosci (wrong word...) like these guys have. They're so ornate... Are they a later trilobite development?

The Devonian saw the trilobites at their third or fourth (and last) "Renaissance," as they suffered badly at the Devonian/Carboniferous extinction event, leaving only one line to putter along, only to die out in the Permian.
And I think it's "rostrum"

The bright colours and different shapes make this a great picture. It doesn't hurt that I love trilobites. :D
Great job.

I always wished something from the trilobite family made it to modern times. Those three up there would surely have been beautiful animals.

Oh yeah. Walliserops, alone would have made for a monumental conversational piece.

Those lengthy rostra and processes give these fellows a spiky, draconic appearance, and the colors are bright and lively. This is quite a catchy composition. :D

I wasn't satisfied with my original drawing of Dicranurus monstrosum, and I also wanted to draw some more Moroccan trilobites.
