"Devil Horned" Cyphaspis Walteri Trilobite Cluster

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a really cool cluster of four complete Cyphaspis walteri trilobites laying on top of each other. This species is sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis for obvious reasons. The largest specimen is 1.5" long, including the spines and many of the spines have been prepared free standing.

This species was finally formally described in 2014. A link to the paper can be found below.
