INTRODUCTION 

This catalogue of type and referred specimens of fossil Mis- 
cellanea in Field Museum of Natural History has the same coverage 
as Volume W (Miscellanea) of the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleon- 
tology (Moore, 1962), except that conodonts and hyolithids are 
omitted. The first section lists "worms," scolecodonts (fossil anne- 
lid jaws), and problematic body fossils. The second section is com- 
prised of small conoidal shells of uncertain affinities (defined by 
Fisher, 1962). Trace fossils (tracks, trails, burrows) are listed in the 
third section. 

In each section, specimens are listed under the originally des- 
cribed name. The date and authorship of the specific name are al- 
ways given. Genera, and species within genera, are arranged alpha- 
betically. Unnamed species (for example, Cornulites sp.) follow all 
named species in chronological order. Vernacular names (for exam- 
ple, "Fucoid") follow all scientific names in alphabetical order.

Only holotypes are recognized as valid types. All other primary 
and secondary types, including "paratypes," "cotypes," and 
"plesio types," are listed as "referred specimens." Artificial casts 
are indicated as "plastoholotype" or "plastoplesiotype," and the 
depository of the original specimen is indicated. Specimens origi- 
nally deposited in the Walker Museum, University of Chicago, now 
on permanent loan to Field Museum, are prefixed UC. Specimens 
prefixed P, PE, PF, and PP were deposited directly into the collec- 
tions of Field Museum. Others prefixed H, HTP, and W were origi- 
nally described from private collections, but now bear PE numbers. 
We have attempted to list all nomenclatorial changes affecting our 
specimens. Changes based on specimens other than ours are given 
under "Remarks." 

Scolecodonts described by Gries (1944) are not listed in the 
"worm" section of this catalogue. Although the specimens were to 
be deposited in the Walker Museum (J. P. Gries and F. C. Potter, 
pers. comm., 1975), they were apparently never catalogued, and 
have not been relocated. 

We thank D. W. Fisher, J. P. Gries, R. G. Osgood, Jr., F. C. 
Potter, R. P. Richards, E. S. Richardson, Jr., J. Waddington, and 
S. Ware for information on problems encountered in the preparation 
of this catalogue. This is the sixteenth catalogue of type inverte- 
brate fossils in Field Museum. The following are listed in this 
catalogue:

I. "WORMS" AND PROBLEMATIC BODY FOSSILS 

Arabellites hindei U. P. James, 1884 

Holotype: by monotypy: UC 924 (missing) 
U. P. James, 1884, p. 149, pi. 7, fig. D

this scolecodont. The holotype was removed from matrix by 
H. W. Scott sometime before 1935 (Gries, 1944, p. 25), and is 
now missing. The generic name Grubia Croneis and Scott in

listed as a manuscript name by Jansonius and Craig, 1971. It 
is apparently a valid name.
