Abstrakt EN: The Hirnantia Fauna was observed at a new stratigraphic level in the topmost Králův Dvůr Formation at Praha-Řeporyje. Up to now this distinctive late Ordovician fauna has been known only from the summit of the Kosov Formation in the Prague Basin. The newly observed fauna consists of draboviids Hirnantia sagittifera, Kinnella kielanae kielanae, taxonomically poor ostracods, a machaeridian Lepidocoleus, a new undetermined carpoid, and the very rare Mucronaspis. The fauna is much poorer than the fauna of the "Perník Bed" below. The presence of the Hirnantia Fauna at this new level indicates a significant cooling and eustatic fall in the sea level esulting in a shallow subtidal environment (BA 3-4) prior to the deposition of glaciomarine diamictites at the base of the Kosov Formation.
