Pseudagnostus rugosus Ergaliev, 1980: a key agnostoid species for intercontinental correlation of upper Furongian (Cambrian) strata

Terfelt, Fredrik and Ahlberg, Per LU (2010) In Geological Magazine 147(5). p.789-796
Abstract
Pseudagnostus rugosus Ergaliev, 1980 is described from the Furongian Ctenopyge tumida Zone at Gislovshammar, Scania, southern Sweden. This is the first record of this distinctive agnostoid in Scandinavia. The species is known previously from Malyi Karatau, Kazakhstan, and northwestern Hunan and western Zhejiang, South China, and provides a newly recognized link between middle-upper Furongian successions in Baltica, Kazakhstan and South China. The occurrences of P. rugosus allow a correlation between the C. tumida Zone of Baltica, the lower Eolotagnostus scrobicularis-Jegorovaia Zone of Kazakhstan and the lower Lotagnostus americanus Zone of South China.
