The trigonotarbid arachnid genus Eotarbus was proposed by Dunlop (1996) as a plesion taxon for a new species from the upper Silurian of Ludford Lane, Shropshire. It has since been brought to my attention that the name is preoccupied. Eotarbus Kušta, 1888 was proposed for a single species of Carboniferous arachnid, Eotarbus litoralis Kušta, 1888 from Rakovnik in the Czech Republic. This preoccupation is unfortunate, as Kušta’s paper gives only a figure for this species and no formal description…
