Lot 0024 Details

  • Item: Elegant spiny Leonaspis sp. Fossil Trilobite. Flying Display.
  • Origin: Devonian. Oufaten. Morocco.
  • Weight (g): 210
  • Size/Dimensions: Fossil: 2,4 x 2,7 cm; Matrix: 9,0 x 8,3 cm
  • Taxonomy - Species: Leonaspis sp. Family: Odontopleuridae. Order: Lichida. Class: Trilobita.

    Restoration details: Residual - The right big pygidial spine is a composite from another partial specimen. It was missing as a result of extraction quarrying work and we decided to reconstruct it for aesthetic reason. This is a very natural situation, acceptable when in residual proportions, like in this beautiful specimen. It doesn't withdraw any value to it, as all the rest of it is natural and suffered no restoration.

    Presented is a beautiful Leonaspis sp. trilobite from the Moroccan Devonian strata with residual restoration. The freestanding "flying" display of all the thin spines is a laborious and very skilled work of dozens (sometimes hundreds) of laboratory hours, under the microscope, just accessible to very few people in all the world.
