One new chitinozoan genus, Salopochitina, and three new chitinozoan species Salopochitina bella, Eisenackitina varireticulata and Eisenackitina spongiosa, all of early Wenlock age, are described from two British Geological Survey boreholes at Lower Hill Farm, Shropshire, and Eastnor Park, Hereford and Worcester. The new taxa have short stratigraphical ranges, are relatively abundant, and may be useful for correlation in successions from Wales and the Welsh Borderlands.
