This is one mind-blowing Moroccan trilobite. This is a fantastic Diacanthaspis sp. from Morocco. This type is strangely similar to the ORDOVICIAN Acidaspis and Diacanthaspis found in the United States. This type is quite sought-after for its extreme spiny features, and this specimen showcases these spines beautifully. This fabulous trilobite has its thick shell preserved - excellent preservation for this layer! The many free-standing spines makes this trilobite extremely displayable and impressive. And the bug is beautifully fossilized on top of some Calymenella parts! This is an incredible, ultra rare trilobite that is one of the best of this type we've ever seen.

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