Large aesthetic preparation of a Morocconites malladoides trilobite from the Devonian of Morocco. It's a member of the Phacopida trilobites and has a very defining feature, a long pointed rostrum (snout, which is missing) coming off of it's head. It's unclear what purpose this rostrum would have served, but it could have potentially been used to help it dig through the mud.
