Here is a rare "Eodiscida Trilobite" of the species Marocconus notabilis from the Jbel - Wawrmast - Formation. The trilobite offers a detailed preservation and a nice color. The fossil was found simply as a split finish.
The trilobite species Marocconus notabilis is better known under the synonym Cephalopyge notabilis. In 2009* Hüseyin Özdikmen revised 20 trilobite genera, also Cephalopyge notabilis was assigned to the new trilobite genus Marocconus.
