Chelicerata, Arachnida, Trigonotarbida, Westphalian, Western Carpathians
A trigonotarbid Maiocercus celticus (Pocock, 1902) is reported from the Westphalian of the Zlatník Formation in Dobšiná, Slovakia. It constitutes the first occurence of fossil chelicerate from Slovakia. Trigonotarbids have been recovered most frequently from the Upper Carboniferous Coal Measures of Europe and North America, the presented specimen, however, does not come from the Coal Measure but from sediments of shallow marine environment with terigenous influx. .
