I proposed the new trilobite genus Opipeuter from the Ordovician of Spitsbergen (Fortey, 1974). I am indebted to Abigail Brown for pointing out to me that the name had been used a few years previously for a lizard (Uzzell, 1969). I here propose the replacement name Opipeuterella (type species: O. inconnivaFortey, 1974) for OpipeuterFortey, 1974, preoccupied. Gender feminine.
