The occurrence of Anomalocaris canadensis Whiteaves, 1892 in the Latham Shale of the Marble and Providence Mountains, San Bernardino County, California is described. The distribution of the genus is reviewed. It occurs in greatest abundance in the Outer Detrital Belt in North America close to the ocean-facing side of the Carbonate Belt, but has also been found in the Lower Cambrian in facies equivalent to the Inner Detrital Belt. Recent comments on the possible role of Anomalocaris as a Cambrian predator are discussed.
