Abstract

The lower Cambrian Latham Shale of Hazzard (1954) crops out at localities scattered widely throughout the Mojave Desert of southeastern California. Although the formation is highly fossiliferous, descriptive paleontologic documentation of its fauna is limited to a very few reports (Resser 1928; Crickmay 1933; Riccio 1952) dealing mainly with the abundant and diverse assemblage of trilobites. Other notes (Hazzard 1933, 1954; Mount 1974b, 1976) have touched on the stratigraphic allocation of some of the trilobite and non-trilobite taxa.
