43 trace fossil ichnogenera have been found in Devonian Shujiaba Formation distributed in thenorthern belt of West Qinling Mountains, and they areAcanthorhaphe Arthophcus, Belorhaphe，Bostri -cophyton, Buthotrephis, Cochilidznus, Chondrites, Cosmorhaphe, Dictyodora，Fucusopsis, Glockeria，Gordia，Gran ula ria，Helicolithus, Helminthoida，Helminthopsis, Lennea，Loph octen ium，Megagrap tort，Neonereites, Nereies, Palaeohelminthoida，Paleod ictyon，Planolites, Protopaleodictyon,,Protovirgular-is，Rhabdoglyphus, Rhobdoichnus, Rusophycus(?)，Saerichnites, Sagittichnus, Scolicia，Skol ithos,Spirophycus,Spirorhaphe,Squamodictyon,Subloren,Subularia,Subhyllochorda，Taphrhelminthoida, Taphrhelminthopsis, Tuberculichnus, Urohelminthoida.All the host rocks of trace fossils mentioned aboveare to rbidi to depo sit s, s o i t iseasy toseethere exists a close link between the formation of trace fossil and turbidity process.

They are not in the leading role among the fossils discovered.Although the abundance and degree of differentiation of trace fossils formed before the turbidityevent :ire g ready higher than that formed after the event, they are of equivalently important role in theturbidite measure for their appearrance reflects the replacement of "fastlow-fast”sedimentation rate,i. e the whole process of the formation is a complete turbidite depositional sequence. Thus we canlink the two sharply lifferent trace fossil assemblages in accordance with their origin, and use them as apaleoichnological indicator of bethyal byssal turbidite measure.
