This is a very displayable spiny trilobite from Morocco. It is a Ceratarges sp. (Type B) from the Devonian. This trilobite was microscopically prepared in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado. This 3-dimensionally preserved trilobite has many long, sweeping spines. The bug has extended genal spines, two broad, flowing spines emanating from the pygidium, and a pair of long, curving ''horns'' that have been prepared in a free-standing manner on this specimen. In addition to these large spines, each pleuron tip extends into a spine, and there are also many short spines between the larger spines on the pygidium. The eyes are borne on stalks which have also been prepared totally free of matrix. The bug has thick, dark brownish-black exoskeleton that contrasts extremely well with the light-colored matrix. The bug is naturally positioned on the large, sculpted block of limestone. This is a very impressive example of a spiny Ceratarges from Morocco.
