Abstract

This is the second part of a two-part study on the Early Arenigian trilobites of the Emanuel Formation, Canning Basin of northern Western Australia. Twenty-one species, 6 of which are new, belonging to 12 genera (2 new) are described and illustrated from 40 localities m the type section of the Emanuel Formation which outcrops on the Lennard Shelf, near the northern margin of the Canning Basin. New genera are Burminresia (type B. tertia n. sp.) and Pseudosarkia (type P. deceptrix n. sp.). Other new species are Burminresia secunda, B. prima, ?B. nuda and Priceaspis rochei.
