Phacops-Rana Trilobite, Rolled on matrix
Phacops-Rana is a genus of trilobite in the order Phacopida that lived in Devonian era Europe, northwestern Africa and parts of China. It was a rounded animal, with a globose head and large eyes, and is speculated to have been a ocean floor predator. Phacops is often found rolled up, a biological defense mechanism that is widespread among smaller trilobites but nearly perfected in this genus.
