Cyphaspis Moroccan TrilobiteDescription: Unusual example of a member of the Order Proetida, Family Otarionidae with many fine details present. While most frequently known in the trade as “Otarion”, this one is actually a member of the genus Cyphaspis.

This one has been prepared in such a way that matrix has been left beneath each spine as protection.
