A beautifully prepared, TOP QUALITY Walliserops trifurcatus trilobite, the "trident Comura". Another November Fossil of the Month and one of the collector's favorite spiny trilobites. Walliserops trifurcatus is an unusual looking species with three rows of of spines run down its back and a trident-like fork extending from the front of the cephalon. A very difficult difficult species to prepare. Excellent shell and spine preservation. Compound eyes are very good. Good size. A rare species! One of the ultimate Middle Devonian (395 mya) spiny trilobite from the Foum Zguid, Morocco. Authenticity guaranteed. One of my favorite spiny trilobites!
