This is a very impressive trilobite. It is an extremely spiny Ceratarges sp. from the Devonian of Morocco. This remarkable bug has been meticulously prepared in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado, as are all of our Moroccan trilobites. This 3-dimensional trilobite is very well preserved and exhibits outstanding detail. The bug has a pair of long, arching ''horn'' spines - both of these spines have been prepared in a free-standing manner. The large eyes are borne on the ends of long stalks - these have also been prepared free of matrix. But wait, there's more! All four tailspines and both genal spines are also free-standing!  And three other spines have also been prespared free of matrix - AMAZING! This is a beautifully-prepared example of this extremely spinose trilobite - a top notch display specimen.

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