In the contribution presented, we place Australian agnostoids in their global classificatory context. The background and justification for this classification is outlined. Documentation includes identification and location of type material where possible, status and designation of types, diagnoses from generic rank upwards, and geographic and stratigraphic range data. We also include a section on descriptive terminology, and another which attempts to demonstrate the biostratigraphic distribution of agnostoid trilobites in the Australian Cambrian. -from Authors
