Specimen SSA806

This is a classic spiny trilobite fossil. It is a wonderful Quadrops flexuosa from the Devonian of Morocco. This trilobite required meticulous preparation under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab (it takes longer to prepare a Quadrops than almost any other trilobite in the world.) Quadrops is one of the most spiny and prized trilobites in the world. This distinctive specimen boasts over 40 free-standing spines, and the famous four-pronged snout is intact and also fully free of matrix. The long genal spines and the distinct pleural and pygidial spines are also beautifully preserved. The detail is excellent, and the natural coloration is strikingly beautiful. And the bug is over three and a half inches long - a HUGE example! This is an excellent ornate Quadrops that displays its spines beautifully.

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