Kettneraspis Odontopleurid Moroccan TrilobiteDescription: Fine example of the genus, this is a member of the genus Kettneraspis. While some prefer Kettnersapis over Leonaspis based upon the pygidial spines, it is definitely a desirable member of the taxon. This one possesses a distinctive set of axial nodes, something not seen on most specimens. In fact they are much like that of Kettneraspis williamsi from the Devonian of Oklahoma, albeit somewhat less pronounced.
