Name: Loreleiops hoelleri (van Viersen, Prescher & Savelsbergh, 2009)
Stratigraphy: Ahrdorf Formation, middle Eifelian
Locality: "Trilobitenfelder", Eifel, Germany

Loreleiops has traits of Austerops and Pedinopariops but is (among other features) distinct from these in its unique dorsal sculpture and the dorsally flattened cephalon (the glabella, palpebral lobes and occipital ring form a horizontal plane, which is identical among all members of this genus). Loreleiops is only known from the Ardennes and Eifel.
