Abstract

The bradoriid genusHipponicharion Matthew, 1886 is one of the oldest known Cambrian ostracods. Until now, five species have been documented and another three taxa have been tentatively assigned to one or another species.Hipponicharion has been recorded from Poland, Germany, Morocco as well as from Canada and Great Britain.Hipponicharion hispanicum n. sp. represents the first Cambrian ostracod documented from Spain.Hipponicharion taidaltensis n. sp., formerlyH. aff.geyeri Hinz-Schallreuter, 1993 andH. elickii n. sp., formerlyH. cf.eos sensuElicki, 1994 have also been restudied in this paper.Hipponicharion seems to be restricted to the Acadobaltic Province sensuSdzuy (1972). The systematic relationships of the Bradoriida, which is controverse, is briefly outlined, emphasizing close affinities to the Ostracoda.

Kurzfassung

Die GattungHipponicharion Matthew, 1886 gehört zu den ältesten kambrischen Ostrakoden. Bisher wurden fünf Arten nachgewiesen und drei weitere Taxa aus anderen Gattungen wurden der einen oder anderenHipponicharion-Art zugewiesen. Die Gattung selbst ist sowohl aus Polen, Deutschland und Marokko als auch aus Nordamerika und Großbritannien bekannt. MitHipponicharion hispanicum wurden erstmals kambrische Ostrakoden in Spanien nachgewiesen.Hipponicharion taidaltensis n. sp., vorherH. aff.geyeri Hinz-Schallreuter, 1993 undH. elickii n. sp., vormalsH. cf.eos sensuElicki, 1994 wurden im Rahmen dieser Arbeit revidiert. Die gegenwärtig sehr kontrovers diskutierten Verwandtschaftsbeziehungen der Bradoriida werden kurz erläutert, wobei die engen Beziehungen zu den Ostracoda betont werden.
