Abstract
    Belgian Devonian trilobites have long been known, but remain comparatively poorly documented. A revision of the obsolete nomenclature seems long overdue, and additionally, a critical evaluation of listings of trilobite taxa by MAILLIEUX (1946) made over sixty years ago is called for. Herein a review of some Devonian trilobites from Belgium is presented , and on sections referred to as VML004 and ARD003 from Jemelle (Ardennes, Belgium) which yielded the new material. It also briefly discusses correlations of Middle Devonian (Eifelian) successions of the Ardennes and the Eifel (Germany), and describes four taxa (Eifliarges caudimurus, Koneprusia maillieuxi, Tropidocoryphe barroisi and Astycoryphe senckenbergiana) from Jemelle.
