Here is an excellent example of a rare trilobite. This is a new species of Phacops from the Devonian of Morocco. This type of Phacops is broader and less pustulated than the more common Phacops "speculator". This trilobite is very well articulated and extremely 3-dimensional. The thick shell of the exoskeleton exhibits excellent detail. The large, compound eyes are well preserved - the individual lenses are almost fully intact. The frames around the eyes are hexagonal - almost identical to Phacops crassituberculata from the Devonian of Ohio. The large bug is beautifully showcased on the sculpted block of dense limestone. This is a superb specimen of this unusual Phacopid trilobite.
