Two Pragian sections from seven eastern Australian successions investigated have yielded chitinozoans; they are the Martins Well Limestone Member of the Shield Creek Formation, north Queensland, and the Coopers Creek Formation at Boola Quarry, Victoria. Chitinozoa from these sections are documented and the new species Gotlandochitina kutjala and Angochitina cactula are described. Comparison of the assemblages recovered in this study with those of contemporaneous faunas from other areas of Australia, Europe and north Africa demonstrate the facility of chitinozoans for intercontinental correlation. A number of diagnostic assemblages based on zone fossils from Europe can be recognised in Australian successions. -from Author
