Synoptic revision of the Silurian fauna from the Pentland Hills, Scotland described by Lamont (1978)

Abstract

Archibald Lamont (1907-1985) sampled the North Esk Inlier Silurian fauna for almost 30 years. He had amassed a substantial fauna that has been, in part, bequeathed to the National Museums Scotland after his death. Unfortunately, the descriptions of the faunas in his last opus were careless and the illustrations were uninformative. Nonetheless, these highlight the singularity and diversity of the Silurian invertebrate faunas in the North Esk Inlier. The taxa erected by Lamont are reviewed, discussed and properly illustrated, at least for those specimens that have been found in the collections of National Museums Scotland. An attempt has also been made to give more precision on the localities and horizons, based on the information in Lamont’s article and on the various labels accompanying the specimens in storage.
