Description: This is the only specimen of this species that I have seen outside of a book. Currently, only this specimen is for sale on the entire planet.

Its relative E. erbeni is perhaps more impressive, but the exclusivity of E. issoumourensis is 20 to 1.

Sandblasted, well preserved, 100% natural fossil, no restoration or spines from another trilobite or paint.
