2.45" Thysanopeltis Trilobite - Issoumour, Morocco

 
This is a large, 2.45" long example of the Middle Devonian trilobite Thysanopeltis speciosa from Mount Issoumour, Morocco. What is so distinctive about this trilobite is the fringe of pygidial (tail) spines. It's nicely outstretched and displays beautifully on the matrix. There is some shell restoration on this specimen where the repaired crack runs through it's tail.
