This is a top quality spiny trilobite fossil. It is a fabulous Quadrops flexuosa from the Devonian of Morocco. This trilobite required meticulous preparation under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab (it takes longer to prepare a Quadrops than almost any other trilobite in the world.) Quadrops is one of the most spiny and prized trilobites in the world. This distinctive specimen boasts over 40 free-standing spines, and the famous four-pronged snout is intact and also fully free of matrix. The long, free-standing genal spines, and the distinct pleural and pygidial spines are also beautifully preserved. The detail is excellent, and the natural coloration is strikingly beautiful. And again, just look at those spines! This is easily one of the best display Quadrops we have ever had.

This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally. A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
