AGE Middle Devonian, Eifelian stage (~394 Million Years)

Observations: Impressive specimen, prepared in an exceptional way. This trilobite with his forked trident has been prepared partially as free-standing along with its beautiful spines. This type of preparation requires meticulous work of tens of hours. Of course, many of the spines during the preparation process have been fractured and glued again, with some restorations in the fracture zones as well as the fork. A preparation like this without restorations is really difficult.

This species of trilobite is very rare, with an almost extraterrestrial aspect. The trident shaped appendage has been considered in functional morphology as a sensitive functionality to find food between the seabed substrate. The eyes facets of this specimen are well detailed.
