Instead of starting a new thread for 2014, for ease of use this archive will expand to include all calender years going forward.

Here is the first available online trilobite paper for 2014: :fistbump:

Here are a couple of foreign language trilobite papers recently published online. The Japanese paper covers the function of terrace ridges, an interesting topic discussed previously at TFF. The Russian paper is a summary on the fauna in the Devonian Baragash Formation, including six unique species of trilobites.

 

Luckily, both of these papers can be loosely translated by Google Translate. emo73.gif :P

The eodiscids are a fascinating and enigmatic suborder (Eodiscina) of trilobites in the Order Agnostida. One of the great ongoing debates is whether or not the agnostids actually descended from the eodiscids. The current general consensus disagrees as eodiscids are thought to be paedomorphically (retaining juvenile traits) derived from a polymerid (multi-segmented) ancestor. There is mounting evidence that the two groups are not closely related and any similarity is the result of convergent evolution. Notwithstanding the larger debate about agnostids, as they appear to be more crustacean-like and incorrectly placed in the Trilobita. As the eodiscid trilobites hardly get a mention, it seemed useful to add a little background info on these unusual trilobites.

Worthy of note re the second paper:

"Kierarges morrisoni gen., sp. nov.
Lámina I, figuras 1-9
Nombre – Especie dedicada a Scott Morrison, de la Universidad de Oregón (USA) por la ayuda prestada para la realización de mis artículos y por
la donación de especímenes para su estudio a diferentes instituciones paleontológicas."

Translation: "Name - Species dedicated to Scott Morrison, of the University of Oregon (USA) for his assistance in the completion of my articles and
donation of specimens for study to different paleontological institutions. "

Congratulations Scott (AKA piranha)!
