Abstract

Phyllocarids (Crustacea: Malacostraca) from the Upper Devonian (Givetian-Frasnian) Gogo Formation of Western Australia are described and two new species are reconstructed. The mineralized exoskeleton is well preserved in concretions, but the appendages, apart from the mandible, are unknown. Montecaris gogoensis sp. nov. (Echinocarididae) is represented by > 600 specimens; a possible second species of Montecaris is represented only by similar to 14 specimens of antero-dorsal fragments of the valves, which are highly tuberculate. Schugurocaris wami sp. nov. (Ceratiocarididae) is represented by > 300 specimens; a possible second species with a very elongate telson is represented by four specimens. An undetermined species of Dithyrocaris (Dithyrocarididae) is represented by > 80 specimens
