Details

Pseudocryphaeus trilobite 67mm prepared in the fossil preparation laboratory using pneumatic tools and finished with an air abrasive micro sand-blaster. This Trilobite is a Devonian Arthropod, a sea bottom dweller. This genus is known for its large eyes, heavy genal spines attached to the cephalon (head shield) and frilly pygidium (tail) . The Trilobite has been prepared to expose the exoskeleton, palaeotologically termed the fossilised carapace, while retaining a prostrate undulance on the original matrix (fossil limestone bed rock).


The whole arthropod carapace is displayed naturalistically, the nose rostrum is stoat and upwardly positioned making the little arthropod to have a slightly animated appearance. The thoracic segments interestingly articulated, the pygidium (tail) segment slightly askew. The arthropod has the appearance of movement. A good collection trilobite.
