dc.description.abstract Silicified dolomite of the approximately one billion year old Skillogalee Dolomite of the Adelaide Geosyncline, South Australia, contains organically preserved microfossils of a structurally complex, crustose pleurocapsalean cyanophyte, herein described as <i>Paleopleurocapsa wopfnerii</i>. Although actual cell contents have been degraded, lamellar sheath material faithfully preserves the morphology of the alga. Comparison with specimens of the modern genus <i>Pleurocapsa</i> Thuret demonstrates affinities at the family level and quite possibly even generic identity. en
