Lower Ordovician trilobites from the Septembersø formation, North-East Greenland Some trilobites of the lower Middle Ordovician of eastern North America Midcontinent Province faunas found Lower–Middle Ordovician stratigraphy of North-East Greenland. F. Lower Ordovician trilobites from western Utah. and eastern Nevada. Formation lying within the uppermost Cambrian of   The Ordovician of North America can best be studied in New York state. In the Early, or Lower, Ordovician epoch, also called the Canadian epoch, the waters spread over the Appalachian area and deposited the Beekmantown limestone, then withdrew generally, to return and deposit the Chazy limestone of the lower Middle Ordovician, also known as the In the Lower Ordovician, North America roughly straddled the equator and almost all of that continent lay underwater. By the Middle Ordovician North America had shed its seas and a tectonic highland, roughly corresponding to the later Appalachian Mountains, formed along the eastern margin of the ://

All trilobites known from the Ardwell Group, Craighead Inlier, Girvan district are listed and frequencies recorded. Encrinuroides lapworthi n. sp. from the Sericoidea Mudstones, and Bumastoides fornax n. sp. from the Kiln Mudstones, are described. The Sericoidea Mudstones constitute a deeper water interlude in the complex succession which comprises the Craighead Limestone Formation Classification and relationships of the Ordovician encrinurines Frencrinoides Lespérance and Desbiens and Walencrinoides Lespérance and Desbiens are poorly understood, with little evidence for monophyly of either genus. We revise the type species of both genera, F. capitonis (Frederickson) and W. rarus (Walcott), using new and archival material. We explore their species composition and SYSTEMATICS OF SOME LATE ORDOVICIAN ENCRINURINE TRILOBITES FROM LAURENTIAN NORTH AMERICA DAVID K. MOSS1 AND STEPHEN R.

Some trilobites lived in shallow burrows where they could keep their heads near the surface of the sand or mud, and grab passing prey. Fossil evidence suggests some trilobites were capable of swimming. The bodies of swimming trilobites are narrower and the eyes are closer to the sides of the cephalon, than those of bottom-dwelling ://

Shaw Although the horizontal distribution of Ordovician conodonts in Europe and eastern North America is still incompletely known, it is evident that the lower Middle Ordovician deposits of this area contain elements of at least three major conodont faunal provinces, namely the American midcontinent province, the North Atlantic province, and the ROZOVA, A.V.
