2.35" Thysanopeltis Trilobite

 
This is a nice example of the Middle Devonian trilobite Thysanopeltis from Mount Issoumour, Morocco. What is so distinctive about this trilobite is the fringe of pygidial (tail) spines. The head is slightly tucked but it displays well on the sculpted limestone matrix.

There is only some minor restoration on this specimen including a couple of patches of damaged shell on the tail and touchups of surface airscribe dings from preparation.
