Foraminifera in the Middle Cambrian of the Barrandian area (Czech Republic)

Journal of the Czech Geological Society, volume 46 (2001), issue 3-4, 195 - 198


The first find of Middle Cambrian foraminifers in the Jince Formation of the Barrandian area is reported. Poor monospecific agglutinated assemblage of Thuramminoides sp. was obtained from grey green shales of the Eccaparadoxides pusillus Zone. The find represents evidently a new species of the genus Thuramminoides Plummer sensu Loeblich - Tappan (1987), but scarce and fragmentary material is insufficient for erecting a new taxon. Besides foraminifers, one poorly preserved fragment of siliceous sponge spicule was found.
