Abstract

The complete exoskeleton of the widely dispersed remopleuridid trilobite Hypodicranotus is reconstructed for the first time based on well-preserved silicified material of Hypodicranotus striatulus (Walcott 1875) from the lower Whittaker Formation (Upper Ordovician, Edenian) of the southern Mackenzie Mountains. The minute oval pygidium consists of a single segment and, as such, it is the most reduced trilobite pygidium known. The subfamily Hypodicranotinae Přibyl and Vaněk is a junior synonym of the Remopleuridinae Hawle and Corda.
