Peltichia Jin and Liao, 1981 (Enteletidae, Brachiopoda) from Asia: Taxonomy, biostratigraphy, and paleobiogeography

Journal Article


Abstract


  • An enteletid brachiopod genus Peltichia Jin and Liao, 1981, is reviewed and emended based on specimens from the Permian sequences of Japan, South China, Vietnam, and Transcaucasia. New and revised taxa are Peltichia akasakensis (Ozawa), P. kwangtungensis (Zhan), P. ruzhencevi (Sokolskaja), P. sinensis (Huang), P. subtriangularis new species, P. transversus (Huang), and P. zigzag (Huang). The genus Peltichia, consisting of 10 species, ranges from Kungurian to Changhsingian, and is distributed geographically in the Tethyan Realm and its surrounding areas and probably as well as in the western Panthalassan region.
