Bad boy coming thru! A rather large(8.5cm) Hollardops mesocristata from the devonian of Morocco. This acastidae specimen has a bit of weathering on the glabella but otherwise excellently prepared by Aziz Oumouhou. The schizochroal eyes are so clean and each lense is clearly defined! Maybe it’s the sharp aggressive shapes or the murdered out black shell, but so many of these devonian trilobites from Morocco just have this sort of punk/heavy metal aesthetic!
