Fossil Trilobite Species Named for Bailey and Domack
Two Hamilton Geoscience Department colleagues were recently recognized with the publication of two newly described fossil trilobite species. Olenellus baileyi and Holmiella domackae were named in honor of David Bailey and Cynthia Domack, respectively, in recognition of the “important influence on the professional development” of senior author Wes Gapp.
The article, “New olenelloid trilobites from Northwest Territories, Canada” appears in the latest edition of the journal Zootaxa. Wes Gapp recently completed his doctoral degree at The University of Kansas.
