Thirty-eight species of ostensibly chonetoid brachiopods (some under open nomenclature) have been described from the Silurian and Lower Devonian rocks of southeastern Australia, although most are neither widely distributed nor abundant. Descriptions of many have been based on inadequate material, and in one significant case ( Johnsonetes australis) the original material is lost, necessitating selection of a neotype to resolve formally the identity of that species in comparison with the similar… 

Brachiopods of the Orders Protorthida and Orthida from the Silurian of the Yass Syncline, southern New South Wales

The Yass Syncline succession ranges in age from possibly late Wenlock to earliest Devonian, with reasonable correlation based on conodonts and graptolites for the late Ludfordian through Prídolí to

Late Silurian strophomenate brachiopods from Yass, New South Wales

The Yass Syncline succession, of possibly late Wenlock and certainly Late Silurian to earliest Devonian age, has yielded eleven species and subspecies described here, belonging to the Superfamilies

Late Early Devonian brachiopods from Montys Hut Formation, central Victoria, Australia

Myodocope ostracods from the Silurian of Australia

The Silurian of Australia contains at least three genera (one new, Canalarta gen. nov.) and three species (two new, Canalarta papata sp. nov. and Bolbozoe beccata sp. nov.) of myodocope ostracods.

Systematic position of two Early Devonian sinistral heterostrophic gastropods from the Garra Limestone, New South Wales

Morphology of the gerontic whorl in Anoriostoma sinistra and Garraspira imtsitata suggests their limited mobility during the last ontogenetic stage, which supports the opinion that the presence or absence of the apertural slit does not necessarily have significance for high-level taxonomy.

Wenlock (Early Silurian) Brachiopods from the Orange District of New South Wales

Two late Wenlock (Early Silurian) brachiopod species from the Ulah Formation near Orange, New South Wales, are closely associated with graptolite faunas. Visbyella cumnockensis occurs in the testis



Late Silurian to Early Devonian Biostratigraphy of Southeastern Australia

Abstract A biostratigraphic subdivision of the Late Silurian and Early Devonian (Ludlovian to Dalejan inclusive) of New South Wales and Victoria is presented. The schemes proposed by Garratt (1980)

Late Ordovician to Early Devonian graptolite sequences in Australia

Late Ordovician graptolites are commonest in the Australian states of Victoria and New South Wales, occurring in sediments which are either folded into complex structures or else interrupted by

Description of Eight Species of Brachiopodous Shells from the Palæozoic Rocks of the Falkland Islands

Transversely semi-oval.; upper valve convex, with a slight mesial depression; lower valve rather concave ; surface covered with fine bifurcating rays crossed by a few concentric lines of growth.

Silurian to lower middle Devonian Chonetacea

Three major groups of Llandoverian to Eifelian chonetids are recognized: the Chonetidae, the Anopliidae, and the Chonostrophiidae. The relationship of these groups to each other and to the enigmatic

Morphological terms used to describe the cardinalia of articulate brachiopods: Homologies and recommendations

This work defines all the main structures of brachiopod internal morphology and recommends a series of terms covering their description.

The lithological units (formations) of the Eldon Gi·oup rocks of the Zeehan al'ea have been defined in an accompanying paper (Gill and Banks), and the purpose of the present communication is to ( 1)

Quadrikentron (Brachiopoda) a new subgenus of Strophochonetes

A new subgenus Strophochonetes (Quadrikentron) is based on Chonetes hudsonica camdenensis. The species 9Chonetes9 hudsonicus and 9Chonetes9 hudsonicus camdenensis are revised and assigned to the new

Brachiopods of the Yarralumla Formation (Ludlovian), Canberra, Australia

The previously unpublished brachiopod fauna of the Yarralumla Formation is fully described; comparison with that of the Yass Formation confirms approximate age equivalence.

Données paléobiologiques et paléobiogéographiques sur quelques Strophochonetinae du Dévonien d'Espagne et du Massif Armoricain

The lack of hinge spines on the left side of the ventral valve in Chonetacea is demonstrated here for the first time. This morphological peculiarity has a special bearing on the evolutionary trends
