Calymene from Morocco, Ordovician in age, and does look real. They are fairly common and so are not usually faked.

We have covered this numerous times.  Calymene is not a valid species from Morocco.  Flexicalymene is the correct genus.

 

Here are the descriptions of F. ouzregui & F. tazarinensis from Destombes 1966:

 

Destombes, Jacques (1966)
Quelques Calymenina (Trilobitae) de l'Ordovicien moyen et supérieur de l'Anti-Atlas (Maroc).

My apologies. It was a best guess.
