Abstract

The Middle-Upper Cambrian transition in southeastern Newfoundland is shown to be very similar to the transition in Scandinavia and in the English Midlands. The late Middle Cambrian Lejopyge laevigata Zone, which is recorded for the first time from eastern Canada, is contained in the basal part of the Elliott Cove Formation and is conformably overlain by the Upper Cambrian Agnostus pisiformis Zone. The following trilobite species from the Lejopyge laevigata Zone at Manuels River and on Random Island are described: Andrarina costata (Angelin), Paradoxides sp., Lejopyge laevigata (Dalman), and Peronopsis insignis (Wallerius).
