Metoptoma barrandei Linnarsson, 1879 is redescribed on the basis of the holotype from the Exsulans
Limestone (Middle Cambrian) of Scania, southem Sweden, and additional specimens of similar age from the Mjøsa district of southern Norway and from Bornholm, Denmark. The low, cap-shaped shell, with fine radiating ribs crossing concentric growth lines, promotes assignment to Scene/la Billings, 1872, originally described from the Lower Cambrian of Canada.
