- Geologic Setting

Publisher SummaryThis chapter focuses on the paleogeographic setting and the stratigrapy setting of northwestern Hunan and eastern Guizhou of China. Major regions of palegeographic setting, defined by sedimentary facies and fauna, are the Yangtze Platform, the Jiangnan Slope Belt, and the Jiangnan Basin. The Yangtze Platform are located tropically, and receive sediments ranging from dolostones, phosphorites, and evaporites to siliciclastics such as black shales, calcareous and carbonaceous shales, siltstones, and marls. Strata representing the upper part of the Cambrian System in northwestern Hunan were originally subdivided into four formations––namely, Aoxi, Huaqiao, Chefu, and Bitiao. It discusses the three measured sections in the Huaqiao Formation of northwestern Hunan and also describes their formation. Cambrian polymerid and agnostoid trilobites have markedly different paleogeographic distributions…

- Correlation

Publisher SummaryThis chapter summarizes the correlation of biostratigraphic zones recognized from South China along with other regions of China, and with those of other paleocontinents such as Australia, Kazakhstan, Siberia, Laurentia, and Baltica. Agnostoid and polymerid trilobites permit biostratigraphic correlation of the studied interval of the Huaqiao Formation in South China with slope or shelf facies of many other regions of the Cambrian world. Intercontinental correlation of the Huaqiao Formation is based on the use of cosmopolitan agnostoid trilobites. Additional biostratigraphic information of Polymerid trilobites are also summarized in the chapter. Agnostoid biostratigraphy for northwestern Hunan and western Zhejiang suggests a precise correlation of the studied interval of the Huaqiao Formation with the Huayanshi and the basal Siyanshan formations. Correlation of the Huaqiao Formation with the equivalent interval in Baltica is principally on the basis of agnostoid biostratigraphy. Agnostoids from Kazakhstan permit precise correlation between South China and Kazakhstan.

- Systematic Paleontology

Publisher SummaryThis chapter focuses on the different systematic paleontology. It provides the class, order, sub-order, family, and genus of type species and other species such as Corynexochus spinulosus. At least sixteen other species, including the type species and two questionably assigned species are included in the genus. Species left in open nomenclature, and which are questionably assigned to Corynexochus, are also discussed in the chapter. The holotype, diagnosis, description, occurrence, and remarks of the species such as Chatiania expansa, Paibianomocare paibiense, and Paraacidaspis species are highlighted in the chapter as well.
