Calcareous microfossils belonging to the family Ovummuridae Munnecke, Servais and Vachard, 2000, are described for the first time from the Silurian strata of Wenlock Edge, Shropshire, UK. This occurrence increases the known palaeogeographical range of the Ovummuridae from the Silurian. The presence of these calcareous microfossils highlights the exceptional level of fossil preservation within the Wenlock Edge Limestone Formation, and may provide insights into the diagenetic history of the formation.
