Abstract

The original description of Archaeonossa, from beds considered Early Cambrian but now dated as early Middle Cambrian, included at least two unrelated forms of trace fossils. The ichnogenus and the type ichnospecies are redefined, a lectotype is designated, and the type material is reiilustrated, along with topotype material from Yoho National Park, British Columbia. Although this trace fossil was originally attributed to movement by a gastropod, it is concluded, on the basis of restudy, that the type occurrence should not be used as evidence of activity by Gastropoda.
