Mrakibina cattoi Moroccan TrilobiteDescription: Elegant example of a member of the Order Phacopida, Subfamily Asteropyginae with dramatic genal and pygidial spines. The Asteropyginae have recently undergone extensive revision, with this example previously called Neometacanthus, an allusion to its similarity to Metacanthina (now called Hollardops). This is a good prone example of the type, well-centered on its matrix base.
