This is an excellent example of an extremely rare trilobite. It is an unusual Saharops sp. from the Devonian of Morocco. This type of trilobite has three rows of vertical spines like its cousin, Comura, but the spines are shorter. The HUGE bug is very 3-dimensional and wonderfully articulated. The genal spines have been prepared free-standing, and the long, pointed pleural and pygidial spines are beautifully displayed. The black, thick-shelled exoskeleton of the bug contrasts strikingly with the lighter-colored matrix. The trilobite is well showcased on the sculpted block of dense limestone. This is a very collectible specimen of Saharops - one of the largest and best we have ever seen!

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