New morphologic information permits systematic revision of trilobites from the Middle Ordovician Klimoli Formation of the Zhuozishan area,Ordos Basin,Inner Mongolia. The new assemblage is composed of 10 species of the Raphiophoridae,Nileidae,Asaphidae,and Telephinidae. An asaphid,aff. Mioptychopyge lashachungensis(previously Paraptychopyge lashachungensis) displays an intermediate morphology between the Chinese nobiliasaphine genera Mioptychopyge and Zhenganites. The pygidial doublure is regarded as the most significant character to differentiate Symphysurus klimoliensis(previously Nileus klimoliensis) of the Nileidae from such closely allied taxa as Poronileus. A nileid,cf. Peraspis kujandensis displays typical nileid morphology,unlike the type species,Peraspis lineolata,which might turn out to be an asaphid. Ampyx gongwusuensis sp. nov. of the Raphiophoridae is the first record of the genus in the Zhuozishan area and reveals morphologic details that might be employed to resolve Ampyx taxonomy in China. Morphologic differences between A. gongwusuensis and Abulbaspis ordosensis might represent a case of sexual dimorphism.
