Here is top quality example of the Devonian trilobite Cyphaspis walteri sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis for obvious reasons. The preparation was done by one of the very best preparitors in the world leaving the shell free of burning by air abrasives. It's a nice large specimen of the species and very nicely presented on the limestone.

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