:My own view is not with trilobites, in spite of their nickname "soft bodied trilobites". As you know, trilobite phylogeny is confounded despite >10K described bugs and a myriad of papers. The understanding of arthropod descendency is many fold worse. I would favor a category "trilobites relatives" (with a redirect from Nectaspida, etc.) to discuss possibilities. Or just have a section on the trilobites page covering  this. Everything would be easier if we knew trilobites belonged with Chelicerata aka Arachnomorpha. Wikipedia, wikispecies and TOL all throw up their hands and use trilobitomorpha -- maybe we should capitulate and do the same. Anyway, I'm dredging the more recent literature.

::By the way, in looking at the trilobites bytes in wikipedia, I'm finding a number of errors, caused by people using search engines, as opposed to going to the literature, e.g., "trilobite had the first true eyes " - yea, right! [[User:RogerPerkins|RogerPerkins]] 15:39, 24 February 2007 (PST)
