Phosphatised olenid trilobites and associated fauna from the Upper Cambrian of Västergötland , Sweden

  title={Phosphatised olenid trilobites and associated fauna from the Upper Cambrian of V{\"a}sterg{\"o}tland , Sweden},
  author={Per Ahlberg and Hubert Szaniawski and Euan N. K. Clarkson and Stefan Bengtson and Ahlberg},
Secondarily phosphatised olenid trilobites from organic−rich limestones (orsten) in the Furongian (Upper Cambrian) of Västergötland, south−central Sweden, are described and illustrated. All trilobites originate from the Peltura scara− baeoides Zone and were collected on the western slope of Kinnekulle. Only the dorsal exoskeletons have become second− arily phosphatised, and the ventral appendages are not preserved. Yet the material is otherwise remarkably well preserved and reveals the… CONTINUE READING
