"Devil Horned" Cyphaspis Walteri Trilobite Cluster

 
 
 
 
 
This is a really cool cluster of two complete Cyphaspis walteri trilobites along with several partials.

This species is sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis for obvious reasons. The spines and horns have not been free-stood in this specimen. There is only some minor restoration along repaired cracks, maybe 2-3% in total

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