This is a gorgeous trilobite. It is a cool "flying" Metacanthina issoumourensis from the Devonian of Morocco. This distinct trilobite has been meticulously prepared under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado. The 3-dimensional bug is wonderfully articulated and exhibits outstanding detail. The individual lenses of the large, crescent-shaped, compound eyes are very easily seen. The front brim and large genal spines have been prepared in a free standing manner (see photos). The dark, chocolate-brown trilobite contrasts strikingly with the light-brown matrix. The fossil is beautifully showcased on the large, sculpted block of limestone. This is one of the best specimens of Metacanthina issoumourensis that we have ever prepared.
