Name change for the Devonian trilobite Cultrops Struve, 1995

Abstract

A replacement name, Struvephacops nom. nov., is proposed for the Early Devonian phacopid trilobite Cultrops Struve, 1995. The name was preoccupied by the recent freshwater fish Cultrops Smith, 1938 (Actinopterygii, Cyprinodae), which in turn is considered as a junior synonym of Paralaubuca Bleeker, 1863.
