|Here is very nice specimen of a Trilobite of the genus Harpes from Morocco.|
The Trilobite is well presented on a nice and natuarly sculpted piece of devonian limestone.
This Harpes Trilobite offers a detailed preservation and has a virtually prone thorax.
This Harpes species is still often labeld as Harpes perradiatus RICHTER, R. & E. 1943.
This is likely tracible back to EBACH, M. and McNAMARA, K. J. 2002. They picture a Moroccan “Bou Dip Harpes” labled as the species perradiatus.
However they look nothing alike the 1943 pictured holotype.
The Bou dip type look mush more similair to the type species Harpes macrocephalus from the German middle Devonian of the Eifel Mountains.
