This is a beautiful specimen of Mrakibina cattoi from the Devonian of Morocco. This unusual type of trilobite has very small eyes, extremely long, wide genal spines, and many long pygidial spines - all of these features are clearly defined and well displayed on this specimen. The tiny compound eyes are easily seen, and the pointed pygidial lappets are all intact. The trilobite has excellent color and contrast and is well presented on the expertly sculpted plate of dense limestone. This is a very collectible example of this uncommon trilobite from the Atlas Mountains.
This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally. A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
