Abstract

A rare new turban-shaped basal Middle Cambrian gogiid eocrinoid, Turbanicystis inflatus new genus and species is described from the Kaili Formation (Kaili Biota), Guizhou Province, China. It co-occurs with three other markedly different gogiids, Sinoeocrinus, Globoeocrinus, and Balangicystis, and is part of a unique Middle Cambrian community that is dominated by echinoderms.
