Palaxius salataensis Brönnimann, Cros and Zaninetti, 1972, the oldest crustacean microcoprolite from the early Carboniferous of Guangxi, South China
Palaxius salataensis Brönnimann, Cros and Zaninetti, 1972 is described from early Carboniferous stromatolite mounds of a fore-reef slope setting from Laibin, Guangxi, South China. This is the oldest occurrence of internally structured crustacean coprolites. The geographic distribution and stratigraphic range of the ichnospecies as well as paleoecological implications of this new record of P. salataensis are discussed.
