Description

This is a nice trilobite specimen of the genus Cornuproetus.  Has granulose cephalon and long swept-back genal spines.

Beautifully preserved. Do not have any type of restoration or repair. It has been cleaned and prepared to match it from its natural carbonaceous matrix. 

His two eyes are very well defined, showing some amazing features. However its details are so small that they need to be seen under a binocular loupe. It is a magnificent example of this rare Moroccan trilobite of the family Tropidocoryphidae.

These trilobites have had a long preparation process, where many hours have been spent only for a single specimen. The preparation work has been carried out by electric striker.

Undoubtedly, it is a wonderful piece representing this group of trilobites, abundant in the Middle Devonian of North Africa.
