Cyphaspides sp

Trilobites Order Proetida, Family Aulocopleuridae

Geological Time: Middle Devonian

Size (25.4 mm = 1 inch): Trilobite is 25 mm long by 25 mm wide (counting spines) on a 30 mm by 65 mm matrix

Fossil Site: Boutschrafin , Morocco

Fossil Code: 04005

Price: $795.00

Description: Unusual example of a member of the Order Proetida, Family Aulacopleuridae with many fine details present. It has similarities to Cyphaspis (see my other listings) with the same bulbous cranidium, stalked eyes, and granulose appearance. It is a rarely-seen taxon; I have only seen 2 offered in Tucson over the last decade. Its enrolled nature makes it difficult to take in all the features from a single viewpoint; hence, the various photos seen here. This one would make a welcome addition to any collection of Moroccan trilobites, one you may not see again in the near future.
