Submit date: 2007-02-04
Location (approximate): , Paulding, OH
Stratigraphy: Silica Formation
Age: Erian (Middle Devonian)
Submitter notes: This third view of this Phacops continues to show the hypostome (mouth cover) and shows the 'pits' along the lip of this taxon. The exact purpose of these has been debated as locking points for the pygidium when the bug is enrolled or it may be something completely unrelated. Post your ideas!

The "Friends" are using Eldredgeops as the primary classification rather then "Phacops"
