Large eyes. Eyes that wrapped around to a point that Phacops could see almost 360 degrees. Eyes composed of uniquely rounded lenses instead of the standard trilobite hexagonal shape. Eyes that were and are Phacops' most distinguishing aspect.
Because of these unique optical features, this most popular of trilobites could easily traverse the shallow Devonian seas that were it's home.
Phacops magalomanicus was one of the larger and more rare of the genus. This cast is a bold presentation of the fascinating creature and includes three complete specimens.
