Fossil Identification System
Superregnum: Eukaryota Woese et al. 1990
Regnum: Animalia Linnaeus, 1758
Subregnum: Eumetazoa Butchili, 1910
Phylum: Arthropoda Latreille, 1829
Subphylum: Trilobitomorpha Størmer, 1944
Classis: Trilobita Walch, 1771
Species: Nyterops nyter (Struve, 1970)
This species is often found in Weinsheim, industrial area, ground dumps of excavated soil. Typical of this species is that you almost always find or a head, or a thorax-pygidium. Probably these parts were seperated during moulting, and are now found as two separate pieces. Occasionally you will find a complete specimen. It is therefore a fairly general type, but it is rarely complete.
