    • Hi, @david-clark – I think you have a typo, is the species S. nasuta? I found some results searching that rather than S. nasufa. Is the family undergoing revision or does it fit into Calymenidae? I’ve gotten some conflicting results when researching it.

      Talk to you soon!

      • Looks like I did have a typo! The formation has changed from Osgood to Massie, so I’ll change that too. I’m not aware of any revisions and I think it fits into the calymene family. I know calymene in general is in need of a massive revision.

        • Yes, from what I understand Calymene is a huge garbage can of trilobites. It sounds like a big undertaking! I’ll stick with the blastoids, for now =D
          Thank you for getting this updated! If you get a chance to take another photo at some point, adding in a scale would immediate push this to ‘research grade’ so it can be searchable on iDigBio’s data portal as well. Talk to you soon, Jen
