Mystery Harpetidae...

Lower ordovician, Sweden. Interested in what you think... Maybe Scotoharpes, Paraharpes, Selenoharpes or Hibbertia...

Thanks for any suggestion!

Hi /jonas,

by the way: as far as I know, the former family Harpidae (Trilobita) should now be called "Harpididae", because of a gastropod family called Harpidae.

See gbif.org, Harpidae (Gastropoda) = "Homonym of Harpidae (Trilobita), latter now = Harpididae, refer ICZN Opinion 1436.".

Kind regards: wolf

Yes thank you! I did know that - was a little too fast at the keys... It's correct now. :-)

This one is not so mysterious. I'd call it Scotoharpes spasskii

Actually, Harpididae Whittington, 1950 does not include Scotoharpes, Paraharpes, Selenoharpes or Hibbertia.

 

The Harpididae includes the following genera:

 

Chencunia, Dictyocephalites, Fissocephalus, Harpides, Harpidoides, Kitatella, Loganopeltis, Loganopeltoides, Metaharpides, Paraharpides, Pscemiaspis
 
The correct family is Harpetidae Hawle & Corda, 1847 which includes the following genera:
 
Arraphus, Bohemoharpes (=Declivoharpes; =Unguloharpes), Bowmania, Brachyhipposiderus, Conococheaguea, Dolichoharpes, Dubhglasina (=Australoharpes; =Sinoharpes), Entomaspis (=Hypothetica), Eoharpes (/Harpina), Eotrinucleus, Harpes (=Helioharpes; =Reticuloharpes), Heterocaryon, Hibbertia (/Platyharpes; =Harpesoides; =Metaharpes; =Paraharpes;=Thorslundops; =Wegelinia), Kathrynia, Kielania (=Lowtheria), Lioharpes (=Fritchaspis), Palaeoharpes, Scotoharpes (=Aristoharpes; =Selenoharpes)

Yes! Thank you! Scotoharpes it is!

You're welcome!

Perhaps someone could please edit the thread title to the correct family name for Scotoharpes: Harpetidae
