2.8" Minicryphaeus giganteus - Recently Described Species

 
 
 
 
 
This is a beautiful example of a recently described species of Asteropyginae. It is now known as Minicryphaeus giganteus, and is similar to the Pseudocryphaeus trilobites from Morocco, only several times as large.

This one is arched over but would be about 2.8" long if outstretched. Excellent preparation with good eye facets and very aesthetic display. No significant restoration.
