Abstract (in english)
   Trilobites of the Upper Silurian from the central Carnic Alps are described. This is the first part of a monograph and deals with the following trilobite families: Styginidae, Aulacopleuridae, Raphiophoridae, Phacopidae and Odontopleuridae. The fauna comes mainly from five different horizons (cephalopod limestones, Wolayer facies) at the famous Rauchkofel Boden section "KA 2175" (Mount Rauchkofel) above the Wolayer See west of trigonometrical point 2175 m.
   Fifteen taxa are described: Goldillaenus calvus n.sp., Stoermeraspis franconica septemcostata n.ssp., Kosovopeltis wissmannae n.sp., Decoroscutellum (Decoroscutellum) haasi n.sp., Protoscutellum kronhofensis n.sp., Otario (Otarion) angustum n.sp., Otarion (Harpidella) novella wolayerensis n.ssp., Odontopleura (Sinespinaspis) consimilata n.sp., Leonaspis sp.n.sp., Kettneraspis juengeri n.sp., Diacanthaspis (Acanthalomina) minutissima n.sp., Radiaspis pecten n.sp., Isoprusia kofelae n.sp., Ceratonurus gibbosus gaertneri n.ssp., Miraspis sp.n.sp.. The trilobite fauna from the four lower stratigraphic levels (Upper Wenlock - Lower Ludlow) indicates close relationship to the Upper Silurian of the Barrandian area. The trilobite fauna of layer 5 (Upper Ludlow) is also similar, but certain species are also like those from the Upper Silurian of the Frankenwald.
   With the exception of Goldillaenus and Stoermeraspis, genera occur in Bohemia, but in the Carnic Alps they are normally represented by endemic species and subspecies. Mainly the latter are morphologically similar to their Bohemian counterparts
