Conodont distributions, and ages of silurian and devonian limestones in the palmers oakey district, N.S.W.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Limestones in the Palmers Oakey District, N.S.W., range in age from Middle Silurian to Early Devonian. They occur as sheet-like, bioclastic beds and/or isolated clasts in three facies: a volcaniclastic facies, a mudstone-limestone facies, and a limestone-mudstone breccia facies. Multielement conodont taxa, not previously reported from Australia, include Kockelella absidata, Kockelella stauros, Ozarkodina asymmetrica, Ozarkodina stygia, Ozarkodina transitans, Pseudooneotodus bicornis, and Pseudooneotodus tricornis. �� Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
