Nicely Prepared Dechenella Trilobite - Scarce Species

 
 
 
 
This is a nice specimen of a pretty scare species of proetid trilobite from Morocco, Dechenella burmeisteri. They come from the same beds as the Drotops trilobites at Mount Issoumour but are far more unusual to find. This specimen is folded, but has been nicely presented on the sculpted limestone matrix with free-standing genal spines. Excellent preparation work.
