Dramatic Hollardops Moroccan Trilobite for SaleDescription: 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 has been prepared with all of the spines freestanding, giving it the illusion of flight.
