Trivia

  • "Lantis," from the word "Atlantis," was the prototype name for Kabutops.

Origin

Like Kabuto, it resembles trilobites, however, more subtely. The large head is identical to the cephlon in trilobites and the spines down the back resemble thoracic sections in trilobites.

Name origin

The kabuto in Kabutops's name could be derived from 兜 kabuto, helmet, referring to its shape and rock-like properties. Its head has a resemblance to a 兜蟹 kabutogani, horseshoe crab. Tops might mean that it is the "the top" in its evolutionary line. It could also be a reference to the extinct creature triceratops, ceratopsidae in general or triops.
