Opik, A.A., 1967. The Mindyallan fauna of north-western Queensland. Bulletin  074. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

This Bulletin is the third of a series of Bulletins dealing with the palaeontology and stratigraphy of the Cambrian of Queensland, as well as of Aus.tralia in general. This Bulletin, dealing with the Mindyallan and its fauna, fills a hitherto bl~mk interval in the Australian Cambrian sequence and supplies amplifying information regarding the geological and biological history of the early Upper Cambrian in general. Originally, the palaeontology of 'the lower chert bed' of the O'Hara Shale was planned as a part of Bulletin 53 (Opik, 1961), but had to be postponed for technical reasons; subsequently the early Upper Cambrian stratigraphy was presented in Bulletin 64 (Opik, 1963), and all available information from all geological sources is now included in the present contribution. 1 wish to emphasize that all Mindyallan comprehendable forms so far collected are described, regardless of their state of preservation, but that some material remains indicating the existence of forms which need further collecting.
