Of the Swedish Graptolites up to this day but very little seems to be known in foreign countries. They merit, however, more attention than has hitherto been bestowed on them—chiefly perhaps because of the scantiness of the literature. The Graptolitic faunæ of Sweden have many analogies to those of other Silurian districts, and are therefore of great importance for the identification of the strata. An acquaintance with them is also required if one wishes to obtain a somewhat accurate knowledge of the vertical and horizontal range of the various types. A short account of them might therefore possibly have some interest even to an English geologist.
