We examined the palaeogeographical distribution of selected Cambrian trace fossils. Astropolichnus hispanicus, Climactichnites, Syringomorpha nilssoni and early examples of Paleodictyon all have a restricted palaeogeographical distribution, probably representing that of their producers. A cosmopolitan distribution is seen in Didymaulichnus miettensis and in early examples of Rusophycus and Dactyloidites. Oldhamia shows a wide distribution in Lower Cambrian deep-sea sediments although that of Oldhamia geniculata is restricted.
