Likely an Acanthopyge sp. or Belenopyge sp. from Jorf (Devonian). I am not sure if it has been described yet. There was a very recently proposed revision to the Trochurinae phylogeny by Allart P. van Viersen. I'll check with @piranha to confirm. 

 

For reference, see

 

van Viersen, A.P. Systematics of Devonian trochurine trilobites (Lichidae). N. Jb. Geol. Paläont. Abh. 300/2 (May 2021), 175–187.
