"Devil Horned" Cyphaspis Walteri Trilobite Cluster

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a really cool cluster of seven complete Cyphaspis walteri trilobites collected near Mrakib, Morocco. This species is sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis for obvious reasons. The horns have been prepared free of the surrounding limestone on all of the specimens.

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