It's a tremendous privilege to have a magnificent new type species trilobite named in my honor. I will certainly treasure this wonderful achievement always!

Don, John, Coco, Tim, Gerry, thanks for the kind acknowledgment!

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)!

Don

Congratulations Scott for the advancement of Trilobite Science and a species dedicated to your superb find! Well Done my friend! PL :D

A cast of the holotype is on the way, as soon as it arrives I'll post a photo! bth_SmileCam.gif

Congratulations Scott for the advancement of Trilobite Science and a species dedicated to your superb find! Well Done my friend! PL :D

There are other donated specimens but I'm not the original finder, hopefully I'll visit Morocco in the future and find one too.

Thanks -- Nathan, Mike, Roger, Carmine, Russ, Peter, and thanks again all for the kudos on my amazing trilobite progeny!

I'll post photos of the holotype cast shortly, once again, thanks everyone for all the great accolades!

Today we get this interesting paper utilizing modern mantis shrimp as a possible analog for trilobite enrolment. :popcorn:

 

Quote

Enrolment in modern day organisms is primarily known from terrestrial arthropods, e.g., pill bugs and pill millipedes, but in the Palaeozoic it was mainly performed by marine organisms such as trilobites, agnostines and their relatives. Stomatopod larvae that appear to be able to perform enrolling in a marine environment are therefore a potential functional equivalent for better understanding the functional aspects of enrolment in extinct marine arthropods.

The trilobite fragments in this paper look like cryptic hieroglyphs, but still trilobites nonetheless! :P
