This very rare trilobite has only recently been described (Feist, 2002). There has been some discussion about the name. It has been suggested by others that this genus might actually be Taemasaspis, but actual proof for this seems to be missing.
This is a very unusual odontopleurid that you will rarely see in trilobite collections. Finding one in the quality, and prepped as well as this one, is truly exceptional.
G. Taemasaspis was also special because it is the last known odontopleurid trilobite still alive during the Frasnian/Famenian Great Extinction Event.
Size Gondwanaspis: 3.7 x 2.8 cm.
This is an astonishing piece
100% authentic, no restoration!
