This is a FREAKIN' HUGE example of a classic spiny trilobite. It is a complete Psychopyge elegans from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. This awesome trilobite was meticulously prepared in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado. This type of trilobite has a LONG, pointed snout, LONG genal spines, long tailspines, and over 30 vertical spines down the back. This specimen displays all of these features beautifully - the snout, genal spines, and tailspines are all intact and very well preserved. The occipital ''horn'' and the entire array of 30+ back spines have been prepared free-standing - quite impressive! The gigantic prone bug (ALMOST SEVEN INCHES LONG!) is beautifully displayed on the large block of sculpted limestone. This is easily the largest Psychopyge that we have ever had.

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