Expertly Prepared Crotalocephalina Trilobite

 
 
 
This is a very nicely prepared example of the Moroccan trilobite Crotalocephalina gibbus. The species is often incorrectly referred to as Crotalocephalus gibbus. It's 2.55 inches long, and the matrix has been sculpted so that it looks like it is crawling off of the rock. The underside of the head has been prepared, so that the hypostome (mouth plate) is exposed. There is no restoration on this specimen.
