As for my favorite weird-looking prehistoric invertebrate...  Well, if I had to pick one species, probably Dicranurus monstrosus.

You have a very wonderful and inspiring gallery. ^_^ 

My husband and I are fossil, rock & mineral collectors. We are very familiar with a great number of trilobite species. We love your concepts.
