Description

This undescribed Acantophyge-like trilobite shows medium-sized pygidial spines and long-sized genal ones. The general form is oval. In the near future, two or three species of this genus/complex might be described from Jorf.

Jorf is a prolific quarry of outstanding trilobites, almost all of them new to science. In 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. 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.
