      Based on new systematic study of the ichnofossils of Soltanieh Formation in eastern Zanjan two new ichnospecies for the first time has been recognized .
   These ichnospecies consist of: Psammichnites giga ( Torell 1868), Bergaueria perata (Prantl1945).
   These ichnospecies are attributed to Lower Cambrian and developed in the Cruziana ichnofacies (Seilacher., 1970).
   These ichnospecies indicate low rate of sedimentation and shallow quiet-water setting below the daily wave base but above the storm-wave base .
