Moderately preserved early Middle Ordovician (Šárka Formation) organic-walled microfossils from the locality of Praha - Červený vrch Hill were studied and documented. The less diversified assemblage contains twelve morphotypes of acritarchs and five chitinozoan species, no cryptospores were detected. All the ascertained acritarchs and chitinozoans belong to taxa characteristic for the cold-water peri-Gondwanan localities.
