Bargain, 1.4" Devil Horned Cyphaspis Trilobite

 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is a 1.4" long example of the spiny Devonian trilobite Cyphaspis walteri sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis for obvious reasons. Only restoration is some touchups along the repaired crack running through the top of the thorax.

This species was finally formally described in 2014. A link to the paper can be found below.
