This is a very, VERY spiny trilobite. It is a fabulous Comura bultyncki from the Devonian of Morocco. This specimen was painstakingly prepared under a microscope in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab here in Colorado. The ''look'' of this trilobite is truly amazing. There are about 40 vertical spines on this trilobite, and all of them have been prepared free-standing! This specimen is almost perfectly prone and wonderfully articulated. The long, sweeping pleural spines and pygidial spines are beautifully preserved - even compound eye facets are well displayed! The natural color of the bug is quite striking and contrasts well with the light-colored matrix. The trilobite is impressively showcased on the sculpted plate of limestone. This is an extremely aesthetic, top quality specimen of this highly collectible trilobite from Morocco.

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