Abstract

The type material of Chinese Upper Cambrian eoacidaspidid trilobites is here reviewed. Belovia, Eoacidaspis, Paraacidaspis and Archikainella are assigned to the family Eoacidaspididae. Paraacidaspis is a valid genus. Metaacidaspis Qiu, 1983, is a junior synonym of Archikainella Liu, 1982. Archikainella acuta Liu, Metaacidaspis beigongensis Qiu, Paraacidaspis triangularis Luo and Paraacidaspis sp. are junior synonyms of Archikainella vomerinus Liu, 1982. Judging from the geographic distribution of four genera of this family, they are good indicators for the typical Late Cambrian slope biofacies.
