Abstract

This paper describes Byzantia obliqua, new genus and species. Byzantia is a small, distinctively ornamented, gastropod genus from the middle Permian (Leonardian-Guadalupian) of West Texas. This provides further evidence of the diversity of the Neritacea in the middle Permian and of the diverse endemic fauna of west Texas.
