The Cambrian strata in Southeastern Yunnan are well developed and contain abundant fossils. It is one of the important areas for studying Cambrian biostraigraphy and trilobite faunas in China. This book summarizes the Cambrian stratigraphy and biostratigraphy in Southeastern Yunnan and the area around China-Vietnam border. Division of lithostratigraphy, biostratigraphy, and chronostratigraphy in SE Yunnan are discussed in detail. A total of 19 fossil zonations within 11 Cambrian formations in sE Yunnan is established. Correlations of Cambrian strata, fossil zonations with other parts in China are also discussed. STratigraphic provinces in SE Yunnan are subdivided into 2 areas: the Pingbian area and the Funing Area. Geographical distribution, lithostratigraphy, thickness variation, and fossil assemblages in each area are discussed respectively. In addition, 15 outcrop sections are described in detail. In the section of trilobite systematic, 153 species, 83 genera, and 41 families (including 61 new species, 6 new generam and 1 new family) are described.
