Abstract [en]

Erratic bould ers of Early Carnbrian age, occ urr ing withi n the Early Miocene glac io-rnarineCape Melvi lle Formation on King George Island (So uth Shetland Island s), Antarctica, haveyielded lingul ate brachiopods including Eoobolus aff. elatus (Pelman, 1986), Karathelenapuru (Kruse, 1990) and Vandalotreta djagoran (Kruse , 1990). It is the firs t EarlyCambrian brac hiopo d ass emblage described from Antarctica . The faun a is closely similarto that from the late Early Cambrian (Toyo nia n) Wirrealp a and Aroo na Creek Limestones,Flinders Ranges, South Austra lia. The new family Eoobolidae is prop osed and the typespec ies of Eoobolus, E. triparilis (Matthew, 19(2) is re- fig ured. The evo lution of thebotsfordiid s and acro thelids is disc ussed in the light of the new materi al of Karathelenapuru, which is intermedia te in morph ology between Botsfordia and Eothe le. The superfamilyAcrot heloidea , is referred to the order Lingulida because of the similarities in musclesys tem, shell structure and deve lopment of pseudointerareas.
