Age:  Ordovician
Formation:  Ktaoua Formation

Here is a very nice starfish specimen from the Ordovician of Morocco. This plate contains a beautiful, complete Petraster starfish. The fossil sea star exhibits excellent detail - all five of the extremely long arms are intact, and the plate structure is easily seen. It is extremely unusual to have all five arms intact and splayed out. The fossil has excellent brown coloration and contrasts strikingly with the light tan matrix. The fossil is somewhat inflated and beautifully showcased on the large, natural block of sandstone that also contains a cool edrioasteroid. This is a very cool true starfish fossil from North Africa.
