A phyllocarid assemblage is described from the lower part of the Šárka Formation of Praha - Červený vrch Hill. Caryocaris subula Chlupáč, 1970 prevails whereas Caryocaris wrighti Salter, 1863 is much less frequent. The definition of Caryocaris published by Racheboeuf et al. (2000) is followed. The mode of life and occurrence of Caryocaris is also discussed in this paper.
