Description: Fine example of the genus, this is a member of the genus Leonaspis. While some prefer Kettnersapis over Leonaspis based upon the pygidial spines, it is definitely a desirable member of the taxon. This one possesses robust genal and pleural spines, more massive than others typically seen, even with fine subspines to the genals.
