  • J. B. Waterhouse


Fünf neue Gattungen und Arcen des Phylum Brachiopoda werden aus Huai Bun Nak, Thailand, beschrieben:Prorugaria thailandica n. gen., n. sp. (Rugosochonetidae);Tuberculatella tubertella n. gen., n. sp. (Overtoniidae);Minispina alata n. gen., n. sp. (Marginiferidae);Aspinosella sinauris n.gen., n.sp. (Retariidae) undMucrospiriferinella undulosa n.gen., n.sp. (Xestotrematidae).


Five new genera and species are described from brown silty mudstone near Huai Bun Nak, north-east Thailand. New taxa areProrugaria thailandica n. gen., n. sp. (Family Rugosochonetidae);Tuberculatella tubertella n.gen., n.sp. (Family Overtoniidae);Minispina alata n.gen., n.sp. (Family Marginiferidae);Aspinosella sinauris n.gen., n.sp. (Family Retariidae) andMucrospiriferinella undulosa n.gen., n.sp. (Family Xestotrematidae). The age is considered to be younger Carboniferous.
