Here is a gorgeous trilobite. This is a new species of Phacops from the Devonian of Morocco. This type of Phacops has fewer eye facets than the more common Phacops speculator. This trilobite is almost perfectly prone and extremely 3-dimensional. The thick shell of the exoskeleton exhibits excellent detail. The large, compound eyes are extremely well preserved - the individual lenses are very easily seen. The frames around the eyes are hexagonal - almost identical to Phacops crassituberculata from the Devonian of Ohio. The black trilobite contrasts wonderfully with the light-colored matrix. The bug is beautifully centered on the sculpted block of dense limestone. This is a superb specimen of this unusual Phacopid trilobite from the Atlas Mountains.
