Abstract [en]

Abstract: The Upper Devonian locality of Strud, Namur Province, Belgium, has since its discovery in 2005 yielded substantial collections of vertebrate, invertebrate and plant fossils. The locality is mostly known for its flora and vertebrate fauna, but also shows exceptional preservation of arthropods. The arthropod faunas primarily comprise of branchiopod and malacostracan crustaceans. Additionally, eurypterid remains have been found, and also assumed encysted branchiopod eggs. Here we present the branchiopod material, composed of Notostraca, Anostraca and Spinicaudata, with emphasis on the former. The specimens are embedded in silty sandstone and evaporitic dolomite. The depositional environment is interpreted as a fluvial estuary. The resting eggs indicate that the area suffered episodic desiccation, a phenomenon typical of the life cycle of modern branchiopods.

Keywords: Notostraca, Anostraca, Spinicaudata, Famennian, Belgium
