This is an extremely detailed spiny trilobite. It is a large Cyphaspis boutscharafinense from the Devonian of Morocco. This trilobite has been microscopically prepared in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado, as are all of our Moroccan trilobites. The trilobite is extremely inflated and very well articulated. The large, bulbous glabella is covered with distinct pustules, and one of the long, sweeping genal spines was prepared in a free-standing manner. The stalked eyes and the long thoracic spine have also been painstakingly prepared free-standing for optimal display. The black bug contrasts wonderfully with the light-colored matrix. The fossil is beautifully showcased on the uniquely sculpted pillar of limestone. This is a fine specimen of a spiny Cyphaspis from Morocco.
