Here is a fine specimen of Morocconites malladoides from the Devonian of Morocco. This trilobite is very 3-dimensional and beautifully articulated. This specimen has an extremely long spine extending off the front of the cephalon. It has been prepared in a free-standing position and curves until the tip is pointing almost straight up into the air. The thick-shelled bug is wonderfully prone and exhibits fine detail. Most of the individual lenses of the compound eyes are easily seen. The black color of the ancient arthropod contrasts nicely with the lighter-colored matrix. It is almost perfectly centered on the natural plate of limestone that has been prepared in an "artful" manner. This is a very displayable example of Morocconites - the unicorn of trilobites.
