Abstract

This report describes the fossils collected by D.M. Traves early in 1948 from the Barkly Tableland and adjacent areas in Queensland and the Northern Territory. The sequence of Cambrian faunas as far as it can be recognised in the present collection corresponds to the revised sequence given by F.W. Whitehouse in "The Cambrian Faunas of North-East Australia". This report comprises stratigraphical and palaeontological notes, and a preliminary list of fossils with notes on the lithology of the rocks in which they occur.
