Middle Cambrian, Guzhangian stage, trilobites, biostratigraphy, chronostratigraphy, Siberia, China.
The Guzhangian stage is defining by the position of its lower boundary marked by FAD of Lejopyge laevigata. But the FAD of Lejopyge laevigata locates in the Middle Cambrian strata of Siberia noticeably higher stratigraphically than in stratotype section Luojixi, Hunan, China. This conclusion are based on detailed analysis of the distribution of trilobites in Middle Cambrian sections of both regions. Due to cosiderable diachroneity of the FADs of Lejopyge laevigata in China and Siberia ones can conclude: the Guzhangian stage is not acceptable in Siberia. .
