Opik, A.A., 1948. Re-examination of fossils of locality B68 (204 miles west of Djarra) Queensland, with a note on the palaeography of the Middle Cambrian. Record  1948/084. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

In the Preliminary Report on Cambrian Fossils (1948/073) collected in the Northern Territory, locality B.68, 20.4 miles west of Djarra, was placed among the localities with the western development of the Middle Cambrian Xystridura-fauna. Mr. P.B. Nye has drawn the writer's attention to the fact that the Djarra locality is in Queensland 90 miles east from the Northern Territory border; i.e. far away from those localities with a typical "western fauna" and near those with an "eastern fauna". A re-examination of the fossils and palaeogeographical interpretation of the locality near Djarra therefore becomes necessary.
