Abstract:

Imperfectly preserved specimen of a supposed hydrozoan Medusites cf. radiatusLinnars., originally described by Pompeckj (1896) from the “Pod trním” locality near Týřovice (Slapnice Member of the Buchava Formation, Skryje–Týřovice Basin) is revised. Recent study of the original specimen and a more complete topotype specimen testify the affiliation to the pineapple-shaped ichnogenus Astropolichnus (Crimes and Anderson, 1985). A new ichnospecies A. bohemicus is established on the material from the Buchava Formation. This material is the first occurrence of Astropolichnus in the middle Cambrian as well as the first report of this ichnogenus in the Barrandian area of Czech Republic.
