Photo of Cyphaspis fossil



Cyphaspis boutscharafinense from near Alnif in Morocco. These nice little spiny trilobites are hard work to prepare and good examples fetch a great deal of money. These specimens are at the affordable end of the spectrum, but still show some finer details - the stalked eyes, the trailing genal spines, etc. Mouthfui of a name, this one.
