Kainops raymondi Description: Well-preserved example of a member of the Order Phacopida, Family Phacopidae, with fine preservation. This trilobite was prepared by Bob Carroll, a world-reknowned preparator of Oklahoma Devonian trilobites. Others may use less care, resulting in a less desirable specimen. This trilobite was once called Paciphacops, but is differentiated from that genus by the larger number of eye facets.
