This is a HUGE example of a classic Cambrian trilobite. It is a fabulous Acadoparadoxides briareus from the Cambrian of Morocco. This type is one of the most faked or reconstructed trilobites from Morocco - this one, however, is guaranteed to be authentic. The large trilobite is outstretched and wonderfully articulated. The free cheeks are present on this specimens, which is quite unusual for this trilobite. The inflated bug exhibits wonderful detail - the long, sweeping genal spines are intact and beautifully displayed, the crescent-shaped eyes are easily seen, and the pleural spines and tail are clearly defined. The trilobite has striking natural color (not painted orange like you normally see!) and is well showcased on the large, natural plate of matrix (not composited into an oval like you normally see!). And the trilobite is well over a foot long - WOW! This is a very large, genuine example of this classic Moroccan trilobite - probably the most natural one we have ever offered.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
