Acta Palaeontologica Polonica 56 (4), 2011: 871-875 doi:

Isolated sclerites of the genus Wiwaxia are reported from shale interlayers in lower levels of middle Cambrian (un−
named 3rd Series of Cambrian) Buchava Formation in the Skryje−Týřovice Basin in the Czech Republic interpreted
as shallow−water sediments. Geographic distribution of Wiwaxia indicates latitudinal control as all occurrences are
obviously restricted to tropical belt.
