This is a very fine example of a classic spiny trilobite. It is a cool Dicranurus hamatus elegantus from Oklahoma. This awesome trilobite was recently acquired from the 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, squared matrix block. Both ''horns'' have been prepared free-standing, and the distinct eyes are well displayed. The 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 the free cheeks are missing, and the body spines are ''jumbled''. This is a very collectible Dicranurus hamatus elegantus offered directly from the Eugene Thomas Collection.

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