Bargain Struveaspis Trilobite - Scarce

Here's a new trilobite that has only appeared on the market from Morocco in very small quantities in the past few years. Very few trilobite collectors have or have even seen an example of this smooth shelled Phacopid. It's a Struveaspis sp. from the Middle Devonian beds near Jorf Morocco.

It is most likely a new species and a very uncommon taxon from the Devonian of Morocco. The shell color is one that I've previously never seen on a Moroccan trilobite. You can see the individual lenses characteristic of phacopid eyes in the right eye of this trilobite.

There is very minimal restoration on this trilobite, main along the natural crack running up through the trilobite where it was broken during collection
