Spence shale and its fauna, (with six plates) by Resser, Charles Elmer Download PDF EPUB FB2

The Spence Shale Member of the Langston Formation is a Cambrian (Miaolingian: Wuliuan) Lagerstätte in northeastern Utah and southeastern Idaho. It is older than the more well-known Wheeler and Marjum Lagerstätten from western Utah, and the Burgess Shale from Canada.

The Spence Shale shares several species with these younger deposits, yet it also contains a remarkable number of Spence shale and its fauna, (with six plates). City of Washington: Smithsonian Institution, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication, Internet resource: Document Type: Book, Internet Resource: All Authors / Contributors: Charles Elmer Resser; Smithsonian :// The Spence Shale is widely acknowledged not only for its soft-bodied taxa, but also for its abundant trilobites and hyoliths.

Recent discoveries from the Spence Shale include problematic taxa and provide insights about the nature of palaeoenvironmental and taphonomic variation between different :// The Spence Shale is widely ackno wledged not only for its soft-bodied taxa, but also for its abundant trilobites and hyoliths.

Rare specimens from the Spence Shale of northern Utah are assigned to Meristosoma paradoxum n. gen. and sp. One specimen from the Marjum Formation of west-central Utah is assigned to Meristosoma sp.

These taxa are further assigned to the new family :// Cambrian strata of the Laurentian craton contain numerous examples of Burgess Shale—type faunas. Although displaying a more or less concentric distribution around the cratonal margin, most faunal occurrences are in present-day western North America, extending from the Northwest Territories to California.
