Yeah I definiatly will, wanted to sign up 2 months ago but I postponed it to next month due to my chirurgy :) 
@gigantoraptor recently informed me that there will be a hunt in Eben Emael in the summer, that's only a 20 minute drive for me and I wouldn't want to miss that hunt! :)

Congratulations on finding the trilobites!  The first pygidium is especially very nice! :dinothumb::trilo:

Thanks John! 

Are carboniferous trilobtes smaller than those from other periods? Or are these just smaller genera because I wouldn't know how to compare. I only have trilobites I bought from shops who import from Morocco and those are a lot bigger. Unfortunately, they are not well described and I wouldn't have a clue from which period/era they are :P

Large trilobites can be found quite often in Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian deposits, but successive extinctions left only one order, the proetids in the Carboniferous and Permian. These later trilobites are typically pretty small.

Thanks! I didn't know this! :)

Tidgy's Dad has given you a good answer , this is one i found in a UK lower carboniferous limestone quarry.
