Ceratarges sp. Free standing spines Fossil 3D Trilobite. Devonian. Tazzarine, Anti-Atlas Mountains, Morocco.
Awesome Ceratarges sp. Fossil Trilobite. Freestanding spines. Devonian. Morocco.
Restoration details: Residual - Just the cracks along the exoskeleton and the matrix have been restored, a normal process when preparing trilobites, after the quarrying work.
Presented is a well prepared Ceratarges from Tazzarine, a quarry from where there is no scientifically described species. In relation to the described ones from Zireg, this specimen could have affinities to C. koumalli. Nevertheless, it exhibits long pygidial spines, the dorsal pygidial spine is medium sized and curved (not vertical and short) and the cranidium and glabella are not strongly inflated. We are in the presence of a type of Ceratarges that, in the future, will be considered a new species.
A great investment and a beautiful artwork in terms of preparation and display.
