Addenda to the record of machaeridian shell plates in the Wether Law Linn Formation (Late Llandovery), Pentland Hills, Scotland

26 January 2017

Abstract

Additional machaeridian specimens from the Wether Law Linn Formation (Telychian) have increased our knowledge of this poorly recorded but abundant group in the Pentland Hills, located a few kilometres SE of Edinburgh. A new type of anterior outer shell plate is described and is compared with material previously described from the same horizon and locality. Moreover, a new species of Plumulites is established on the basis of a disarticulated but close association of shell plates.
