Trilolab is a collective of people that are involved with the various aspects of trilobites. Our primary focus is the Devonian of the Ardenno-Rhenish Mountains (Belgium, Luxemburg, France and Germany) and southern Morocco.
We do not claim to be an academic research lab. We are a non-profit workgroup, aiming to collaborate and share knowledge by means of fieldwork, education and (research) articles.
November 2021: Fieldwork campaign in collaboration with the Naturmusée of Luxembourg, Palaeontologica Belgica and some German colleagues, looking for Emsian trilobites and associated fauna in Luxemburg.
November 2021: We hosted a full day live online preparation demo @ the PaleoTime-BE event.
October 2, 2021: TRILOLAB coordinated the livestream of the 2021 Louis De Pauw & Palaeontologica Belgica Award ceremony hosted by Palaeontologica Belgica at the VUB campus, Brussels.
September 22, 2021: Minor updates of trilobite classifications in the galleries subsequent to recently published research.
