Chancelloria australilonga sp. nov. is described from the Emu Bay Shale (Cambrian Series 2, Stage 4) of Kangaroo Island, South Australia. The new species has a typical sac-like body, equipped with a meshwork of dozens of distinctive rosette-like sclerites. Each sclerite comprises one central ray and six or seven lateral rays, and is characterized by a pair of remarkably long and subparallel adapical rays. Chancelloria australilonga is one of the few chancelloriid species preserved with an apical...

The trilobite Redlichia Cossmann, 1902 is an abundant element of the lower Cambrian (Series 2, Stage 4) Emu Bay Shale (EBS) Konservat-Lagerstatte on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Well-preserved, fully articulated specimens from this deposit are known to reach lengths of up to 25 cm, representing one of the largest known Cambrian trilobites. Until now, all Redlichia specimens from the EBS have been referred to Redlichia takooensis Lu, 1950, a species originally described from South China. Pre...

Trilobites are often considered exemplary for understanding the Cambrian explosion of animal life, due to their unsurpassed diversity and abundance. These biomineralized arthropods appear abruptly in the fossil record with an established diversity, phylogenetic disparity, and provincialism at the beginning of Cambrian Series 2 (∼521 Ma), suggesting a protracted but cryptic earlier history that possibly extends into the Precambrian. However, recent analyses indicate elevated rates of phenotypic a...

AbstractThe lower to ?middle Cambrian rocks (Terreneuvian, Series 2 and possibly Miaolingian) of the Arrowie Basin are exposed superbly in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia. They comprise two major sedimentary packages: a lower carbonate-rich succession (Hawker Group and correlates) and an upper siliciclastic-dominated succession (Billy Creek Formation, Wirrealpa Limestone and Lake Frome Group). These rocks form one of the most complete lower Cambrian (Terreneuvian and Series 2) successions...
