Long Spined Cyphaspis Eberhardiei Trilobite

 
 
Here is an example of the trilobite Cyphaspis eberhardiei sometimes referred to as a long-spined Cyphaspis or long-spined Otarion. This species of the order Proetida has long stalk eyes, a very granulose bulbous cephalon and elongated spines. There is some damage to the right eye stalk.

Note: There are many specimens of this trilobite on the market where the spines have been faked or artificially lengthened. The spines on this specimen are real and it has no restoration.
