Fantastica associazione di Trilobiti fossili naturali - Su Matrice, sulla matrice - Drotops armatus + Drotops megalomanicus

Descrizione
Fantastica associazione di Trilobiti fossili naturali - Su Matrice, sulla matrice - Drotops armatus + Drotops megalomanicus
DEVONIANO (358,9-419,2 milioni di anni fa) - Marocco

No restoration except residual cracks on exoskeleton and matrix, as usual.

These species are rarely found on the same rock in a way that they can be displayed together. The pigydium was missing at Drotops megalomanicus. As usual, we present fossils as they're found on the mountain. After all, fossils are not perfect and that's their beauty.

Hope you appreciate this work of art as we do. It will take a lot of time till a similar piece to be discovered and prepared.
Also, quarries extraction realities are changing and non profitable ones will be abandoned in a near future.

Besides the fantastic display of this huge piece, both specimens present quite good eyes.

Dimensions: Drotops armatus (enrolled): 6,6 (sag.) x 6,5 cm;
Drotops megalomanicus (excluding the naturally missing pygidium): 10,5 x 7,0 cm;
Matrix: 17,5 x 11,4 cm.

Finding locality: Jbel Issimour, Anti-Atlas Mountains, Morocco.

Taxonomy:
Species: Drotops armatus and Drotops megalomanicus; Family: Phacopidae; Order: Phacopida; Class: Trilobita.
