Abstract (in english)
   The genus Kenzieana Liljedahl, 1989 (Nepiomorphia Kříž, 2007) from Perunica, the European peri-Gondwana and Baltica is the oldest known, very long ranging Silurian (late Wenlock to late Přídolí) genus of Spanilidae Kříž, 2007, and was most probably the ancestor of the Gorstian Algerina Kříž, 2008, and the Ludfordian Spanila Barrande, 1881. Kenzieana is represented by K. bellula (Barrande, 1881) from the Homerian (late Wenlock, and K. cardiopsis (Barrande, 1881) from the late Wenlock to the late Přídolí. Kenzieana was very shallow and slow burrower resting in the sediment on nits anterior, almost subcircular or widely elliptical and flat frontal face with a few byssal threads attached to loose detritus.
