Devonian Proetidae (Trilobita) from the Ardennes Massif (Belgium, N France) and the Eifel Hills (W Germany)

New data are presented on trilobites of the family Proetidae (subfamilies Proetinae, Dechenellinae, Cornuproetinae) from the Devonian of the Ardennes Massif and the Eifel Hills (Rhenohercynian zone). Preliminary stratigraphic distributions of the Proetidae from the southern border of the Dinant Synclinorium are introduced. Eight taxa are recorded, namely: Gerastos prox lessensis n. ssp., Gerastos catervus (VAN VIERSEN, 2006), Gerastos sp. B, Dohmiella tenuiornata n. sp., Dechenella daumeriesi n. sp., Dechenella sp. A, Cornuproetus cornutus ssp. 2, and Diademaproetus? sp. In addition, Dohmiella... More ...

A, Cornuproetus cornutus ssp. 2, and Diademaproetus? sp. In addition, Dohmiella stumporum n. sp. and Gerastos sp. A are described from the Eifel. The genus Rhenocynproetus BASSE, 2002 is regarded as a junior subjective synonym of Gerastos GOLDFUSS, 1843.
