Mucronaspis sp. or Mucronaspis zagoraensis?

 

Thanks in advance

Mucronaspis zagoraensis has longer genal spines.  Instead, this one is a good match with: Dalmanitina socialis

Indeed, since the first day, I have something with these specimens. I still looking and there's something a bit different from Mucronaspis. That made me put the naive question. Now you figured what it is. Thanks again, @piranha

 

I have others that I will post here to confirm and add to the sample. One of them it's a gorgeous multiple plate I am finishing to prepare.

So, maybe this one is a Mucronaspis?  8,2 cm

Please take a photo that looks like the one I posted above, with a close-up of the glabella so the lobes and furrows can be seen.

This one has a significantly larger eye size.  I would label this as: Mucronaspis cf. termieri.  Dalmanitina and Mucronaspis are each found in the Ktaoua Formation.

Here there is no bondo (at UV). It feels sculptured. What do you think, @piranha ?

 

Thanks,

 

Miguel

I agree!  The genal spines appear to be fabricated.
