"Devil Horned" Cyphaspis Walteri Trilobite Cluster

This is a little cluster of Cyphaspis walteri trilobites quarried near Ofaten, Morocco. There is one complete specimen measuring 1.1" long and two partial specimens laying underneath it. The spines and horns are present, but they have not been prepared free-standing. Cyphaspis walteri is sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis for obvious reasons.

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