Description

Presented is one Acanthopyge undescribed Fossil Trilobite. This undescribed Acantophyge-like trilobite shows big pygidial spines and medium-sized genal ones. The general form is elongated and, exactly for that, it's the form that most resemble the described Acanthopyge sp. Notice the central long pygidial spines curved. All those characteristics are very Acantopyge-like. Soon, two or three species of this genus/complex might be described from Jorf.

Jorf is a prolific quarry of outstanding and beautiful trilobites, almost all of them new to science. In the last years, gorgeous specimens and slabs have been found here.

The silica at Jorf is quite colourful and the trilobites display these unique colours. The translucent rock is very hard to separate from the exoskeleton of the trilobites. The work is only possible to very few expert skilled hands. Often we see extremely rare specimens over-blasted, which is a shame for such rare beauties.
