Trilobites of the suborder Eodiscina from the Lower Cambrian of the northeastern Siberian platform (Khorbosuonka River section)

  • I. V. Korovnikov


Trilobites of the suborder Eodiscina from the Lower Cambrian section of the Khorbosuonka River (Siberian Platform, Olenek Uplift) are studied. The stratigraphic distribution of these forms in the section is shown Two new species, Hebediscus sublongus sp. nov. and Korobovia khorbosuonica sp. nov., are described. This is the first occurrence of the genus Korobovia on the Siberian Platform. The new record provides additional data on morphology and expands the paleogeographic range of the genera represented by the newly described species.
