Tremadoc faunas from the Carmarthen district, south Wales


, : Tremadoc faunas from the Carmarthen district, south Wales. Geological Magazine, 1191: 1-38

A diverse fauna of trilobites, graptolites, inarticulate brachiopods, sponges and a worm is described from the Tremadoc rocks cropping out in the Llangynog district, Southwest of Carmarthen. It permits identification of the Clonograptus tenellus Zone and older Tremadoc strata; younger Tremadoc strata apparently are absent. The fauna shows closest affinities with the Shineton Shales of Shropshire; some of the trilobites also indicate a close relationship with those from the Tremadoc of northwestern Argentina.
