Lobopyge Trilobite from MoroccoDescription: This is a fine example of a trilobite from the Lower Devonian Laatchana deposits near Alnif, Morocco. The taxon is a member of the Order Lichida, Family Lichidae, and is infrequently available. It is well-positioned on its limestone matrix base, with the genal and pleural spines well-displayed against the light-colored matrix. It has a recently-assigned “cousin” in the Devonian deposits of Oklahoma, Acanthopyge consanguinea (Bug X) which can be seen in my offerings from the incomparable preparator Bob Carroll. For a more typical example of the Moroccan taxon, please see my other offerings.
