    The fauna1 analysis of the Upper Fezouata Shales Formation (Arenig, central Anti-Atlas,\r\nMorocco) shows five distinct associations, one of graptolites and four of trilobites, and an\r\nenvironment is proposed for each one. The results obtained from the sedimentary facies confirm this\r\ninterpretation and allow the environment of the trilobite biofacies and transport phenomena on a\r\nstorm-dominated marine platform to be defined.
