Clathrospyris vogti Goll and Björklund, 1989

Description - Add description

Skeleton consists of a simple cephalis on many specimens. Some specimens have additionally a short irregular thorax joined to the three basal spines. Cephalis large, thick-walled, smooth or chaotically spinous, joined directly to the top of the sagittal ring. The loose trellise of cephalic lattice is confined to lateral margins and V-side of cephalis and frames a single large pair of sagittal lattice pores on the D- side of the cephalis. A- and V-spines short. Three spines project basally as extensions of the D- and LL bars. Some specimens have additional irregularly disposed basal spines. Rare specimens have a short skirt of loosely trellised thoracic lattice joined to the basal spines.

A species of Clathrospyris characterized by the presence of a single pair of sagittal lattice pores on the D-side of the cephalis.

The species is named posthumously in honor of Professor Johan H. L. Vogt, 1858-1932, Royal Frederick's University, Oslo.
