Abstract

Bohemograptus urbaneki Rickards et al. ( 1905, p. 54, figs 31L-M, 32H) from the Ludlow of the Spring- Quarry Creek area of New South Wales is a primary homonym of B. urbaneki Tsegelnjuk (1976, p. 129, pl. XL, figs 10-12) from the Ludlow of the Brest Depression. Further, we now consider that our species should be assigned to Lobograptus Urbanek, 1958, and here rename this species Lobograptusjeremii, in memory of Jeremy Rickards, on the basis of his contribution to studies of graptolite hydrodynamics. As we noted in Rickards et al.
