Description: This unknown Odontopleurid trilobite comes from a relatively new location known as Jorf in Morocco, close to the site from which the polished goniatite ammonites originate. The presence of a central pygidial spine is indicative of an affinity of the Koneprusine rather than Isoprusine Odontopleurids. It is a small trilobite which has been prepared freestanding to accent the spines. I have included a pair of trilobite preparation images so you can get a feeling the effort that goes into freeing such a small spiny trilobite from the matrix.
