"Devil Horned" Cyphaspis Walteri Trilobite + Gerastos

 
 
 
This is a cool association of a "devil horned", Cyphaspis walteri along with two Gerastos trilobites. It was collected from the Bou Dib Formation near Ofaten, Morocco. The only restoration is some minor shell restoration on the Cyphaspis along the repaired cracks in it's head.

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