Metascutellum TrilobiteDescription: A member of the Order Corynexochida, Family Styginidae from the Middle Devonian deposits of Jebel Issoumour, Morocco, this is a member of the genus Metacutellum. The pustulose nature distinguishes it from most other scutellids with the exception of some in the genus Scutellum. To date none has been described scientifically. This is a most eye-catching specimen from any angle, and quite an impressive size to boot.
