Here is an attractive specimen of Metacanthina barrandei from the Devonian of Morocco. This trilobite is very inflated and wonderfully articulated. The bug is well preserved in an outstretched position and exhibits fine detail. The long, wide genal spines are extremely evident, and the pygidial lappets are all intact. One of the large compound eyes shows most of the individual lenses, while the other eye is nearly immaculate. The black trilobite contrasts nicely with the lighter-colored matrix. The fossil is beautifully displayed on the natural plate of dense limestone. This is a very ''clean'' example of Metacanthina from the Devonian.
