Conodont faunas from the Eoplacognathus pseudoplanus Zone in five main areas of Middle Ordovician rocks in Sweden are described and discussed and compared with faunas of comparable age from neighbouring areas. The investigation is based on 118 samples which together yielded 175 114 conodont elements. The Swedish conodont faunas are intermediate between shallower-water faunas from the eastern part of Baltica and deeper-water faunas towards the west. Correlation with the Yangtze platform of south… 
Middle Ordovician Conodonts from the Chingiz Ridge (Kazakhstan): Taxonomy of the Naiman Formation Assemblage and Its Biogeographic Affinity
Abstract —Conodonts from carbonate rocks of the Naiman Formation (Chingiz Ridge, East Kazakhstan) have been studied in detail for the first time. The mixed conodont complex is characterized by a high
Ordovician (middle Darriwilian-earliest Sandbian) conodonts from the Wuhai area of Inner Mongolia, North China
Abstract. Forty-two conodont species belonging to 26 genera, which span the middle Darriwilian to the earliest Sandbian interval, are documented from the Wolonggang and Hatuke Creek sections in the
Darriwilian (Middle Ordovician) conodonts from the Maruia- Springs Junction area, New Zealand
A diverse conodont fauna of 28 species has been recovered from the Sluice Box Formation, exposed in the Maruia-Lake Daniels-Springs Junction area at the southernmost extension of the fossiliferous
Late Ordovician conodonts and brachiopods from near Greenvale in the broken river province, North Queensland
Late Ordovician conodonts and brachiopods are described from limestones (previously referred to the Carriers Well Formation) in the Wairuna Formation of the Broken River Province. The conodonts

Biostratigraphic significance of Darriwilian conodonts from Sierra de La Trampa (Central Precordillera, San Juan, Argentina)
The Eoplacognathus pseudoplanus Zone is defined by a conodont fauna composed by E. pseudoplanus (Viira) and Dzikodus tablepointensis (Stouge) among others in the Central Precordillera, Sierra de La
Sedimentary facies and trilobite and conodont faunas of the Ordovician Rann Formation, Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates
The Rann Formation occurs as unique ‘exotic’ rafts in front of the Semail Ophiolite in the northern Oman Mountains. Its Ordovician age has been poorly constrained and it is often associated with


Conodont faunas with Lenodus variabilis in the upper Arenigian to lower Llanvirnian of Sweden
Lenodus variabilis occurs in an interval in the lower to middle Kundan Stage which includes the Arenig-Llanvirn boundary. The lower part of its range constitutes the L. variabilis Zone, the upper

Conodont biozonation in the upper Arenig of Sweden
Conodont faunas from the Arenigian Lanna/Volkhov Stage in Baltoscandia have been the subject of intensive study, particularly during the last decade, and different biozonations based on them have
