Abstract
    The macrofauna of the Hanonet Formation is well documented with the exception of trilobites. Recent investigation of the basal layers of this formation (Polygnathus ensensis conodont Zone) at Resteigne has allowed identification of six trilobite taxa, comprising Calycoscutellum goolaertsi n. sp., Nyterops hollandi n. sp., Hypsipariops? sp., Gerastos cf. prox, Dohmiella sp. 2, and Dechenella sp. The taxa Calycoscutellum cf. goolaertsi sp. and Cornuproetus cornutus n. ssp. 1 are recorded from the same formation at Couvin.
