Reedops pembertoni Trilobite Moroccan MoroccoDescription: Colorful example of a member of the Order Phacopida, Family Phacopidae with many fine details present. The most diagnostic features of this taxon are the fine schizochroal eyes and elongated cephahlon, well-displayed here. This specimen has been expertly prepared by microabrasive techniques to result in this fine example of the type which is very 3-D in aspect, perched atop this sculpted matrix base. The rich color reminds me of trilobites recently found at Hmar Laghdad, albeit browner than red.
