6" Wide, Devil Horned Cyphaspis Trilobite Cluster - Mrakib, Morocco

This is a cool, 6" wide, cluster of three complete Cyphaspis walteri trilobites laying on top of each other. This species is sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis for obvious reasons. The largest specimen is 1.5" long, including the spines. All of the spines have been left supported by limestone, not free-stood.

This species was finally formally described in 2014. A link to the paper can be found below.
