Cyphaspis carrolli

     "New aulacopleuroidean trilobites from the Lochkovian of Oklahoma include the otarionine Cyphaspis carrolli new species from the Haragan Formation, and the brachymetopid Cordania wessmani new species from the overlying Bois d'Arc Formation. Cyphaspis carrolli is the first record of the genus from the North American Devonian. It is a highly plesiomorphic species, dissimilar to contemporaries from Europe, but closely related to Silurian species from Northern Laurentia and England." See referance below.
