Huntoniatonia Oklahoma TrilobiteDescription: Huntoniatonis ( Huntonia) oklahomae is a Dalmanatid trilobite (Order: Phacopida; Suborder Phacopina; Superfamily: Dalmanitoidea; Family: Dalmanitidae) coming from the Lower Devonian strata of Coal County, Oklahoma. It came from the Bois d’Arc Formation which comprises the highest elevations in the quarry. Bob wanted to make that clear, which is while he made note on the reverse. While it bears strong resemblance to H. oklahomae, to my knowledge that taxon has not been reported from the Bois d’Arc.. While the name seems like a typo, it is the result of the fact that the original genus Huntonia was found to be preoccupied by an Isopod. This trilobite was prepared by Bob Carroll, a world-renowned preparator of Oklahoma Devonian trilobites. Others may use less care, resulting in a less desirable specimen. Bob was only able to locate and prepare a few examples of these dramatic trilobites in the last year. See my other offerings for an example of the rare H. lingulifer.
