Double "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis Trilobite

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is nice example of the Devonian trilobite Cyphaspis walteri. sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis, for obvious reasons. There is a second Cyphaspis next to it just missing it's tail. The spines on these trilobites are natural, there has just been about 3-4% of shell restoration on the complete specimen, mainly where the crack ran through it.

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