This is a very fine example of a classic spiny trilobite. It is a cool Dicranurus hamatus elegantus from Oklahoma. This awesome trilobite was acquired from the famous Eugene Thomas Collection. This type is probably the most sought-after and recognizable trilobite from Oklahoma. This stunning fossil is beautifully outstretched on a large, sculpted matrix block. Both ''horns'' have been prepared free-standing, the LONG genal and body spines are easily seen, and even the tiny tail is intact. Dicranurus is one of the hardest Oklahoma trilobites to find this well articulated - usually many of the spines are missing or the body segments are ''jumbled''. This is a very collectible and displayable Dicranurus hamatus elegantus offered directly from the Eugene Thomas Collection.

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