Abstract

Problematic phosphatic elements are reported for the first time from Bohemia, Czech Republic, and are attributed to Eurytholia bohemica n. sp. Similar mineralized elements, interpreted as sclerites, were known only in a very narrow interval from Middle-Late Ordovician beds bordering the Iapetus Ocean. This new report comes from the Silurian and Early Devonian and provides a significant range extension for these Problematica as well as an enlargement of their geographic extent. Comments open new perspectives in the interpretation of these elements.
