.9" Unidentified Lichid Trilobite From Jorf - Belenopyge Like

 
 
 
 
 
This is a rare, and as far as I know currently undescribed Lichid trilobite from Jorf, Morocco. This new species appears to have some affinities to either Belenopyge or Acanthopyge . Only a handful of these specimens have come onto the market over the past couple of years, and this is a beauty. It's .9" long and the preparation work is fantastic. There maybe a small amount of shell restoration to the very top of two axial rings where the repaired cracks runs through. There is a partial proetid trilobite also associated with it.

I collected this locality when I was in Morocco two years ago. The rock at this site is partially metamorphised, massive and has no discernible layers. It's almost amazing that there are well preserved trilobites in the rock given the geological changes that it has gone through.
