A new Permian–Triassic boundary brachiopod fauna from the Xinmin section, southwestern Guizhou, south China and its extinction patterns

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A new brachiopod fauna comprising 31 species in 19 genera is described from a Permian–Triassic boundary section in Xinmin, Guizhou Province, Southwestern China. The brachiopods were collected from the Changhsingian (latest Permian) Changxing (=Changhsing) and Dalong (=Talung) formations and the lower Griesbachian (earliest Triassic) Daye Formation, which were deposited, respectively, in a shallow-water carbonate platform, upper offshore and carbonate platform settings. Among the brachiopods described and illustrated, a new species Juxathyris subcircularis is proposed. In addition, some species Araxathyris previously reported in south China have been discussed in detail and revised, with new morphological information. In particular, internal structures are provided for the first time for Orthothetina and Araxathyris species reported from south China. In addition, important clarifications are also provided on the morphology and diagnoses for Haydenoides, Martinia, Crurithyris and Transcaucasathyris, as well as for Paryphella transversa.
