    Trilobites of the family Lichidae are relatively poorly diversified within the Eifelian mixed siliciclastic-carbonate succession of the southern margin of the Dinant Synclinorium (Belgium). Until now, they were only represented by species belonging to the genera Ceratarges and Eifliarges. The...

    The Frasnian representatives of Asteropyginae in the Frasnes area (south Belgium) have long been relatively well-documented when compared to other trilobites in the Devonian of the Ardennes (Belgium, northern France). However, examination of the type material and new collecting by the authors...
