Here is an extremely displayable trilobite. This is a beautiful Paralejurus hamlagdadicus from the Devonian of Morocco. This remarkable specimen has been meticulously prepared in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab, as are all of our Moroccan trilobites. This trilobite does not have the short genal spines like Paralejurus rehamnanus. This unusual Scutellid trilobite is extremely inflated and wonderfully articulated. Both free cheeks are intact, and the orangish eyes are quite striking. The long, contraflexed bug exhibits very fine detail - the texture of the thick shell exoskeleton is easily seen. The very large trilobite is extremely well displayed on the massive block of sculpted limestone. This is a beautiful, top quality specimen of a large, contraflexed Paralejurus hamlagdadicus.

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