Certain Palaeozoic rocks of the Amanos Mountains in southern Turkey have been investigated, and their stratigraphical relationships are briefly reviewed. Trilobites of Middle Cambrian, or Acadian, age have been collected from strata previously assigned to the Devonian. The specimens described here include the genus Pardailhania, together with an indeterminate agnostid, and suggest affinities with North African and eastern North American faunas of similar age.
