Huntoniatonia (Huntonia) huntonensis Oklahoma TrilobiteDescription: Huntoniatonis ( Huntonia) huntonensis is a Dalmanatid trilobite (Order: Phacopida; Suborder Phacopina; Superfamily: Dalmanitoidea; Family: Dalmanitidae) coming from the Lower Devonian strata of Coal County, Oklahoma. 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. It is primarily distinguished from the more rare species of genus Huntonia from Oklahoma by its shorter pygidial spine. 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 few last years. See my other offerings for an example of the rare Huntoniatonia lingulifer.
