Abstract

A review of the history of systematic taxonomic and biostratigraphic studies of Ordovician graptolites from New South Wales demonstrates that these faunas have been neglected relative to those from Victoria which form the basis for the Pacific Province zonation. Research projects currently underway will alleviate this deficiency, with initial focus on (a) three localities yielding early Floian faunas, and (b) earliest Bolindian (late Katian) faunas from two areas. Many of these graptolites are illustrated for the first time from New South Wales in this interim report.
