Large Enrolled Phacopid Trilobite - Mrakib, Morocco

 
 
 
This is a large, enrolled Phacopid trilobite from Mrakib, Morocco. The large phacopid trilobites from this location have outstanding preservation very reminiscent of the Eldredgeops from the Silica Shale in Ohio. This one is perfectly enrolled and would be around 3 1/2 inches long if it had been outstretched.

The compound eyes in this specimen show amazing detail and all of the pustules on the head are well preserved. There is some shell restoration right on the front of it's nose, about 2-3%
