Abstract

Six species of clathrodictyid stromatoporoids are described from the Upper Ordovician successions of China. They come from localities in north China (Qinghai and Shaanxi Provinces, and Nei Monggol Autonomous Region), and SE China (Zhejiang and Jiangxi Provinces), and mainly from horizons of early-middle Ashgill age. Only a single occurrence of Ecclimadictyon is known from an earlier (late Caradoc) horizon. The zoogeographical relationships of the fauna are also discussed.
