Abstract

Two new fossils, a possible sprigginid worm and a new trace fossil, were discovered in loose shale slabs from the Upper Clastic Member of the Kuibis Formation on a farm, Buchholzbrunn 99, in the Bethanie district, South West Africa. The discovery of a sprigginid worm seems to strengthen the relationship between the faunas of the Nama Group and of the Ediacara in Australia. A new trace fossil, Buchholzbrunnichnus kröneri, provides evidence that mollusc-like organisms inhabited the Precambrian Kuibis (Nama) sea.
