ScotoharpesDescription: Elegant example of a member of the newly-erected (2002) Order Harpetida, with many fine details present. Previously, this one was known as Aristoharpes (taxonomy of trilobites seems to be perpetually in a state of flux). Notice the fine pitting of the preglabellar ring. This one was well able to stay at the surface of the seafloor by virtue of the dramatically curving “shield”. It has been prepared to allow for easy viewing of the body which is partially enrolled. The dramatic cephalic shield has been prepared freestanding, showing this fine example to best advantage.
