Duslia insignis Jahn, 1893


Originally described by Jahn (1983) as a chitnoid mollusc. It was recognized as an arthropod by Pilsbry (1900) and Fritsch (1908). It also shows some morphological analogies with Cheloniellon, Pseudoarthron and Triopus. Duslia inhabited a nearshore shallow marine environment and was probably a benthic animal which lived buried in sandy substrate near the sediment-water interface.
