This is a very ornate Lichid trilobite. It is a Lobopyge sp. (Type B) from Morocco. This trilobite has been prepared in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Walsenburg, Colorado, as are all of our Moroccan trilobites. This type has very pustulose ornamentation on the thick shell exoskeleton. This specimen showcases this feature beautifully. The trilobite is complete and extremely well articulated. Both free cheeks are tightly attached, and even the tiny stalked eyes are intact. The slightly contraflexed bug has been meticulously prepared so that the genal spines are free-standing and the hypostoma (mouthplate) is exposed. The trilobite is very 3-dimensional, and it is aesthetically centered on the sculpted limestone block. This is a very detailed trilobite with excellent features preserved.
