This is an excellent specimen of Drotops megalomanicus from the Devonian of Morocco. This Phacopid trilobite is not only big, it is extremely inflated. The wonderfully articulated bug is quite prone and exhibits very nice detail. The large compound eyes are very well preserved - the individual lens pattern is easily seen. The distinct, pustulose texture of the thick exoskeleton is well defined. The black trilobite contrasts beautifully with the grey matrix. The bug is wonderfully showcased on the HUGE, sculpted block of limestone. Every trilobite collector should have a Drotops in their collection - unfortunately, there just aren't enough good ones like this to go around.
