This is a very unusual spiny trilobite. It is a beautiful Kolihapeltis chlupaci hollardi from Morocco. This specimen was meticulously prepared under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado. This type of trilobite is a Scutellid, but differs from most Scutellids by having five spines on the head! There are two spines that emanate from the top of each eye - one LONG spine and one short one. There is also a LONG occipital spine growing out of the center of the head. This specimen has all five spines intact, and they have all been prepared in a free-standing manner, with the three long spines flowing gracefully over the body. The trilobite has excellent detail preserved - the ribbing in the tail is quite distinct and easily seen. But the most striking feature of this spiny trilobite is its amazing dark color, with orange highlights! The wonderful natural color of this trilobite's exoskeleton is simply breathtaking. This is a top quality Kolihapeltis, probably the most beautiful and displayable one we have ever seen.
