Hollardops TrilobiteDescription: Elegant example of a member of the Order Phacopida, Subfamily Asteropyginae with many fine details present. Notice the many eye facets present on this example. The Asteropyginae recently have undergone revision. This genus has been known in the past as Metacanthina, an entirely different trilobite (see my other offerings). This one differs from the more common Hollardops mesocristata in that the pygidial spines are somewhat more pointed. The species was named by the describer for both of his parents, and includes the English word “and” a diversion from the more typical Greek and Latin. It comes from Tahrajat, a location between Jebel Issoumor and Jebel Oufaten.
