This is a very, VERY spiny trilobite. It is a Comura sp. from the Devonian of Morocco. This specimen was painstakingly prepared under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado. The ''look'' of this trilobite is truly amazing. There are about 40 vertical spines on this trilobite, and all of them are free-standing. This specimen is almost perfectly prone and wonderfully articulated. The long, sweeping pleural spines and pygidial spines are beautifully showcased. The natural color of the bug is quite striking and contrasts well with the light-colored matrix. The trilobite is nicely offset on the large plate of sculpted limestone. This is a very impressive specimen of this highly collectible trilobite from Morocco.
