Psychopyge elegans TrilobiteDescription: This trilobite is a member of the Order Phacopida, Family Acastidae from the Devonian deposits of Djebel Issoumour, Morocco known as Psychopyge elegans (see my other offerings for an example of Psychopyge termierorum with an extremely elongated rostrum). ALL spines have been prepared freestanding on the cephalon as well as those on the axial and pleural lobes. It is a fine affordable example of the taxon. Those prepared entirely freestanding take well over 100 hours to prepare and easily cost TRIPLE what this one does.
