Dalmanites is a genus of trilobite in the order Phacopida.
The trilobites of this genus have slightly convex exoskeletons with an average length of 4–7 cm. The cephalon is semicircular or parabolic. The glabella is often pear-shaped, and tapers outward toward the front. The glabella also always contains three pairs of obvious glabellar furrows. Also prominent are the large mosaic eyes.
The thorax is composed of eleven segments, with the relatively large pygidium with a slender axis of 11 to 16 rings and 6 or 7 pleural ribs. The pygidium ends in a striking tail spike.
During the Ordovician and Silurian periods, the genus Dalmanites was widespread all over the world, inhabiting a variety of climates and sea conditions.
