New species among the Trilobites - extinct sea arthropods from c. 370 million years a.C.n. - was discovered in Świętorzyskie Mountains. An unknown species was named Trimerocephalus chopini – to honour the greatest Polish composer.

The discovery was announced in an article published in the "Zootaxa" periodical [3626(3), 2013]. (Authors: dr Adrian Kin and dr Błażej Błażejowski).
