Extract

The Cambrian trilobite Shantungia Walcott, 1905 is a monotypic genus, with S. spinifera Walcott, 1905 as the genotype and is characterized by its long frontal spine extending medially from the anterior cranidial border. The genus has hitherto been known restricted in occurrence to the traditional Drepanura Zone of North China (Walcott, 1913; Endo and Resser, 1937; Qiu et al., 1983; Zhang and Jell, 1987). As Drepanura Bergeron, 1899 is preoccupied by a collembolan insect and Neodrepanura Özdikmen, 2006 was proposed as a replacement, this zone is referred to as the Neodrepanura Biozone herein.
