Abstract

A diverse Upper Ordovician (Eastonian) graptoloid fauna of some 20 taxa has been obtained from ‘black shales’ of the uppermost Foxlow Beds near Ryrie Hill south of Michelago. Eighteen of these are figured and described. The age indication is Eastonian 2 and 3, possibly about the caudatus/morrisi Biozone boundary in global graptolite terms. Some specimens exhibit a peculiar preservation, possibly of associated soft parts, though not necessarily graptolite soft parts.
