Middle Devonian trilobites from the Mont d’Haurs section in Givet, France, with two new species of Dechenella

  • Arnaud Bignon (a1) and Catherine Crônier (a1)

Recent investigation of the historical Mont d’Haurs section near Givet yielded numerous trilobites from Middle Devonian carbonate deposits. The trilobite fauna described in the present paper comprises a number of taxa from the basal Givetian, including two new ones: Dechenella givetensis sp. n.; Dechenella calxensis sp. n.; Dechenella ziegleri Struve, 1992; Goldius cf. capitellum (Archinal, 1994); and Nyterops cf. hollandi van Viersen, 2007a. This fauna confirms the previously recognised taxonomic diversity pattern and the Dechenella and Nyterops Association from the middle Middle Devonian in the Ardenne area.
