Paratermierella   Hupe 1953

Paratermierella is like Termierella except it has no pre-glabellar field.  It has a large glabella with three clear furrows backwardly directed.  Like other Termierella it has large palpebral lobes that are angled outward distally from the glabella.  Notice that the pre-glabellar field is non-existent on this genus and that the glabella is particularly large. The body of the trilobite is long and tapered, and like other Termierella the pleural areas are in fact just as thick at the bottom and even narrower at the top than the thorax.  The pygidium is well preserved in this specimen and in the third photo below shows as oval in shape.  The right genal spine is somewhat displaced downwards but the left is intact.
