This is an uncommon Oklahoma trilobite. It is a complete example of Cyphaspis carrolli from the Haragan Formation. This specimen was found and prepared by Eugene Thomas in 1996. This species of trilobite has an extremely bulbous glabella and very slender genal spines. A long thoracic spine emanates from the sixth segment - this spine is free-standing on this specimen. This trilobite is preserved in an outstretched position. The bug is well articulated and exhibits great detail. The fine pustules on the glabella are easily seen, and the knob-like eyes are quite evident. The trilobite is extremely inflated and displays well on the block of matrix that also contains a curled Kainops raymondi! This is a fine specimen of Cyphaspis with all of its spines free-standing.
