This is a very collectible trilobite. It is an excellent Phacops africanus from the Devonian of Morocco. This type looks similar to the large Moroccan Drotops megalomanicus, but it is much rarer. This type is quite smooth, instead of covered with pustules like the Drotops. It also has deep grooves in the pygidium. This specimen was prepared under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS prep lab. The bug is extremely inflated and exhibits fine detail. Almost all of the individual facets of the large compound eyes are intact, and the coarse pustules of the glabella are easily seen. The dark color of the trilobite contrasts beautifully with the light-colored matrix. It is wonderfully presented on the rounded plate of sculpted limestone. This is a great example of this highly uncommon Phacopid trilobite.
