2.1" Bumpy Platyscutellum Trilobite With Axial Spines

 
 
 
This is a fairly rare and as far as I can determine still undescribed trilobite from Atchana, Morocco. It maybe of the genus Platyscutellum or the genus itself may end up being new. It it has both a very bumpy exoskeleton, as well as a row of small axial spines which has been prepared free-standing.

This specimen is 2.1" long and nicely prepared with beautiful shell preservation. There is a tiny bit of shell restoration above the left eye.
