Abstract [en]

The near planispiral euomphaloid gastropod Lesueurilla prima (Barrande in Perner) is a typical part of the cold water Mediterranean fauna in the Lower and Middle Ordovician. It is a signature species in strata of this age in the Prague Basin in the Czech Republic, Montagne Noire in France, and Central Morocco. The species is reported for the first time from the Darriwilian of Iran where it occurs in the upper part of the Shirgesht Formation of the Derenjal Mountains north of Tabas in east Central Iran. It occurs with a small species of the bellerophontoid gastropod Sinuites sp., as well as the calymenid trilobite Neseuretinus birmanicus (Reed) and the pliomerid trilobite Ovalocephalus kanlingensis (Zhang). The biogeographic distribution of Lesueurilla suggests that the genus had its origin in cold water, high-latitude peri-Gondwana areas during the Lower Ordovician, spreading to other peri-Gondwana areas and low-latitude areas of North China, Tarim, and finally Baltica, Laurentia and Australia in the late Middle and Upper Ordovician.
