1.6" Kettneraspis Trilobite (Long Occipital Horn) - Lghaft, Morocco

 
 
This is a nicely prepared, 1.6" long, Kettneraspis? prescheri trilobite quarried at Lghaft, Morocco. It has a large, and very distinctive occipital spine. These trilobites have typically been labeled as Leonaspis but based on more recent papers it appears to be Kettneraspis? prescheri. There is about 2% shell restoration along the repaired crack.
