Here is nice example of the Devonian trilobite Cyphaspis walteri sometimes referred to as the "Devil Horn" Cyphaspis for obvious reasons. This is a nicely presented example of this spiny Moroccan Otarionidae trilobite. There is a head of a second specimen right next to it.

This species was finally formally described in 2014. A link to the paper can be found below.
