Here is a very colorful and distinct trilobite. This is Scabriscutellum furciferum from the Devonian of Morocco. This specimen was meticulously prepared under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado. This type of trilobite has a rather small cephalon with short genal spines and protruding eyes. The pleurons extend into thin, pointed spines, and the fan-shaped pygidium is huge! All of these features are well displayed on this specimen. This slightly contraflexed trilobite is wonderfully articulated and beautifully preserved in a 3-dimensional manner. Both free cheeks are present and tightly attached. The bug has great, natural brown coloration and displays beautifully on the sculpted plate of dense limestone. This is a top quality specimen of Scabriscutellum that is also quite colorful.
