Abstract

Preliminary information regarding the occurrence of an Early Cambrian fauna in New South Wales has been published earlier (Opik, 1968); the full report was, however, delayed until the map of the Broken Hill area compiled by G. Rose (1st edn, 1970) provided published geological data. The systematics of the suborder Eodiscina (also represented in the Cymbric Vale Fauna) are revised, completing the revision of the trilobite order Miomera, the first part of which was published earlier (Opik, 1967). The biostratigraphy of the Lower Cambrian is reviewed so as to place the Cymbric Vale fauna within the scale of that Epoch. The described fossils and the rest of the collection are kept in the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.
