This is a very ornate Lichid trilobite. It is a complete Acanthopyge (Lobopyge) bassei from Morocco. This trilobite has been prepared in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado, as are all of our Moroccan trilobites. This type has very pustulose ornamentation on the thick shell exoskeleton. This specimen showcases this feature beautifully. The trilobite is complete and extremely well articulated. Both free cheeks are tightly attached, and even the tiny stalked eyes are intact. Also, both genal spines are present. The nicely outstretched bug is very 3-dimensional, and it is aesthetically showcased on the sculpted limestone block. This is a very detailed Lobopyge trilobite with excellent features preserved.
