Part of the New Records of the Great Dying in South China book series (NRGDSC)


The specimens in this book were mainly collected from 15 sections from Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Anhui, Hubei, Hunan, Guizhou and Guangxi provinces in South China (Fig. 2.1) and some of them have already been published (see Appendix 1). The studied sections mainly include Hushan (HS), Majiashan (MJS), Rencunping (RCP), Xinmin (XM), Duanshan (DS), Shaiwa (SW), Xiejiaping (XJP), Dengcaoba (DCB), Shangname (SNM), Dongpan (DP), Paibi (PB), Liuqiao (LQ), Zhongzhai (ZZ), Huangzhishan (HZS) and Daoduishan (DDS) (Fig. 2.1). Additionally, there two specimens were respectively collected from the Xichang (XC, see Appendix 1) and Dushan (DSH, see Appendix 1) sections.
