Meadowtownella trentonensis Trilobite from CanadaDescription: This diminutive member of the Odontopleuridae is known as Meadotownella trentonensis. The genus is found in Wales, Ohio, New York, and Canada. This species derives its name from The Trenton Group in which specimens have been found, with perhaps the most famous coming from the Walcott-Rust Quarry in New York. It appears to have its affinities with another Odontopleurid from the Neuville formation which as yet to be described; see my other postings for a specimen of Odontopleuridae indet.
