Acta Palaeontologica Polonica 25 (3-4), 1980: 669-670

In the years 1974-1978, the author found algae In rocks bearing a corallicyathid fauna (order Corallicyathlda Sedlak, 1975) outcropping on Łysa Góra Mt. in Świętokrzyskie Mountains (= Holy Cross Mts), Central Poland. They belong to the class Rhodophyta and resemble representatives of Erbtna Korde, 1973, and of Eptphyton Bornemann, 1886, except for their much larger size. Some of them are assigned to the genus Erbtna, which gives further support to the Early Cambrian age of the rocks bearing them, suggested by the author with reference to Corallicyathlda.

Key words: Algae, Lower Cambrian, Poland.
