Description:: This trilobite is a member of the Order Phacopida, Family Acastidae from the Devonian deposits of Oufaten, Morocco known as Psychopyge termierorum. The genals and occipital spine have been prepared freestanding. Note the a=many fine eye facets in this example, as well as the turned-down rostrum. For some reason the rostrum of this species was highly variable, ranging from grotesquely-elongated to dramatically-foreshortened. See my other offerings for an example of Psychopyge elegans, and another Psychopyge praestans.
