Watch Full Video Of Real vs Fake Trilobite Fossils and How to Tell the Difference.Useful information for determining whether trilobite fossils are originals or casts (with a little geology humor thrown in). Like this video to help Phacops pay for rehabilitation. Revision: "What is being called Phacops in the video is (in most cases) the genus Proetus. Both are from the Lower Devonian of Morocco" - Bruce Stinchcomb - As I am unable to revise the video after uploading, I added this message from the comments section to better promote accurate information.
