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… Expand
Middle ordovician conodonts from the Chingiz Ridge (Kazakhstan): taxonomy of the Naiman Formation assemblage and its biogeographic affinity
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 taxonomicExpand

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 theExpand

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 fossiliferousExpand
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 conodontsExpand

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 LaExpand
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 theExpand
Morphology, evolution and stratigraphic distribution in the Middle Ordovician conodont genus Microzarkodina
ABSTRACT Microzarkodina is a genus of mainly Middle Ordovician conodonts that has its centre of distribution in Baltoscandia, and much less commonly occurs in southern China, Australia, Argentina andExpand


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 upperExpand
An Early to Middle Ordovician succession of conodont faunas at Mäekalda, northern Estonia

The middle Lanna/Volkhov Stage (middle Arenig) of Sweden and its conodont fauna
In the established European conodont zonation the Paroistodus originalis Zone represents an interval in the upper middle Arenig or middle Lanna/Volkhov Stage. I have so far found it at 14 SwedishExpand
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 haveExpand

Provinces, communities, and the proposed nektobenthic habit of Ordovician conodontophorids
Ordovician conodontophorid distribution, paleogeography, paleoclimate, and global tectonics strongly support the existence of one biogeographic conodontophorid province, largely restricted toExpand
