New Species Kayserops Trilobite - Issoumour

 
 
 
 
This is a new species of Kayserops from a newly collected trilobite layer at Jebel Issoumour, Morocco. This layer lies between the Psychopyge and Metacanthina layers that have been collected for years. It is different than the common Metacanthina which has often been referred to as a Kayserops or Asteropyge. From what I have heard this new layer was quickly collected out.

The trilobite itself is slightly arched and 1.65" long. It has beautiful eye detail, the shell is covered in many tiny bumps or pustules. The shell is a dark black color and the preparation work is very well done. There is no significant restoration to the specimen.
