    The genus Scutella should be have had a global distribution (I’m not sure but I’ll check it as soon as I’have a little time…).
    Also The specie S.paulensis has had a large distribution (at least in West Europe) even if not always the specimens are so well preerved.
    The best localities are surely in France (there are some fossil sellers on the web that sell very beautiful specimens)(e.g. link: http://web.onyxnet.co.uk/John.Gamesby-AZTEKIUM/crustacea.html).
    If you need more detailed info (for example about the distribution in your geographic area) you are welcome !!
    Thanks for your interest and …
    Greetings from Plymouth, UK !!!
