Abstract (in english)
   An adult specimen of a tremanotid Boiotremus incipiens (Barrande in Perner, 1903) is described bearing a large, repaired, probably mechanical jury of the final whorl. It is suspected that the jury may have originated as a result of a collision of the shell with a small falling volcanic bomb; such bombs are commonly present in the surrounding sediment. The specimen comes from the "Rešna" quarries near Karlštejn, Kopanina Formation (Silurian, Gorstian)
