Abstract: In order of a complex reexamination of the Jurassic faunas of the Schafberg and closely connected area, the authors carried out new collecing and sampling. The studied area contains localities of classical palaeontological monographs, based on fossils of the Lower Liassic Mierlatz Formation and some other associated limestones. During the field work we attempted to locate the classical sites but most of the exposures are new. Characteristic megafossils are the brachiopods but bivalves and gastropods are also found. Beside notices on the microfacies and microfossils, the identified species of the faunas are listed below, and, some palaeontological remarks are added to most of the listed species. The faunal lists are partly completed with museum materials.
