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 very slightly arched and exhibits nice detail. The large compound eyes display the individual lens pattern. The granulose texture of the thick exoskeleton is well defined. The black trilobite contrasts beautifully with the gray matrix. It is almost perfectly centered on the large block of limestone. Every trilobite collector should have one of these Drotops in their collection that is this nice. Unfortunately, there just aren't enough good ones to go around.
