Abstract

Ediacaran fossils are now largely known in different parts of the world. However, some countries are poorly documented on these remains. Thus, rare fossils from the Neoproterozoic Histria Formation of central Dobrogea (Romania) have been reported. Two specimens with discoid imprints are described here in detail and assigned to the typical Ediacaran species Beltanelliformis brunsae Menner in Keller, Menner, Stepanov & Chumakov, 1974. This palaeontological development confirms both the large geographical distribution of this species and the Ediacaran age of the Histria Formation.
