Macropyge (Promacropyge) Scandinavica new species; The first macropyginid trilobite recorded from the Furongian of Baltica

Terfelt, Fredrik LU and Ahlgren, John (2007) In Journal of Paleontology 81(6). p.1516-1522
Abstract
Macropyge (Promacropyge) scandinavica new species is described from the Furongian Peltura minor Zone on northwestern Mount 14 Kinnekulle, southcentral Sweden. It represents the first macropyginid trilobite recorded in Baltica. M. (P.) scandinavica closely resembles other species of the same subgenus from southeast China, suggesting a correlation between the Scandinavian P. minor Zone and the Lotagnostus americanus-Hedinaspis regalis Zone of China. The specimens are preserved in two limestone lithologies, interpreted as representing alternating 14 normal and storm deposits, supporting the idea of an intrabasinal paleohigh in Vastergotland, southcentral Sweden.
