As one of the largest Devonian Period trilobites, the Drotops megalomanicus is a perfect classic display trilobite due to its typical features in massive proportions. No squinting needed here to admire all the characteristics that make trilobites such amazing creatures with its pustulose carapace, dramatic segments and lobes, and large multi-lens eyes. Sadly, this trilobite is no longer being found in the Atlas region as prevalent as it once was and genuine specimens are becoming difficult to locate now. This has also led to the unfortunate proliferation of entirely faking these creatures and many can be found on the market.
CHOICE preservation with pustolose detail and BOTH EYES SHOWING LENS DETAIL.
Because genuine FINE GRADE Drotops megalomanicus trilobites like this are uncommon, fakes populate the marketplace. Similar to all trilobites found in the world, the only way these are located is to break the trilobite-bearing rock therefore, repair and some restoration to the break is unavoidable.
