Presented is one Acanthopyge rare Fossil Trilobite. This undescribed Acantophyge-like trilobite shows medium-sized pygidial spines and short-sized genal ones. Its general form is oval but it has a bigger size than the long genals ovoid form. It is certainly a must-have species in a collection.
The Acanthopyge-like forms are diverse. As a result, two or three species of this genus/complex might certainly be described in the near future.
Jorf is a prolific quarry of outstanding trilobites. And almost all of them are new to science. In last years, gorgeous specimens and slabs have been found here.
Above all, Jorf is a beautiful quarry, not so far away from Erfoud. Because the silica rock from Jorf is quite colorful and the trilobites display these unique colors, it is fairly known as a place of extremely rare specimens. But the translucent rock is hard to separate from the exoskeleton. So, the work is only possible to very few expert skilled hands. That is to say that often we see extremely rare specimens over-blasted, a shame for such rare beauties.
