I can help, since I've been playing with the theorem.  In my figure:                         B                        / \                     A2  /   \  C1                      /     \                     /       \                    /         \              A1   /  A0   C0  \   C2                  /             \                 /       B0      \                /                 \               C-------------------A                    B2       B1(which I haven't been able to draw very accurately),  A0 B0 C0is the Morley triangle,  and  A B0 A1  and  C B0 C2  are"the adjacent trisectors" to the edge  CA, with  A1  and  C2being on the circumcircle.   The edges of Den Roussel's triangleare the three lines  A1 C2,  C1 B2,  B1 A2.    It is indeed connected with the Morley triangle, correspondingedges of the two triangles being parallel.  But it doesn't seem to be so "deep", since its equilaterality is much easier to prove.I'm looking for some great generalization of the parallelness ofthese two triangles.              John Conway
