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 a distinctive set of mid-pleural nodes on the thoracic segments, something I have only seen before in a very few examples of Kettneraspis prepared by Bob Carroll, Clarita, Oklahoma.
