One of the most beloved trilobites from Morocco, with an also mythical history.
In the Mrakib quarry, it is extremely rare to find complete individuals like this one. Maybe no other individual like this one will ever be found, Extractions realities are quickly changing in Morocco and difficult quarries will be abandoned in a near future.
Long spines and a unique morphology identify this jewel of the Moroccan trilobites. This one has been prepared with the genal spines half freestanding and the final display resulted astonishing. With more than 7 cm and a stunning careful preparation that enhances the pustules at pigydium and cephalon, it is for sure one of the best specimens ever prepared. A museum item.
