Abstract

Fifteen species of brachiopods are documented from spot localities and two stratigraphic sections in the Ukalunda Beds of north Queensland. Two horizons in one of the sections has produced conodonts of the perbonus Zone. Four of these species also occur in siltstones at Douglas Creek, south of Clermont, central Queensland, suggesting stratigraphic alignment with the Ukalunda Beds. Broad correlation is indicated with the Receptaculites and Warroo Lst. Mbrs of the Taemas Fmn at Taemas, NSW, and with the Murrindal Lst. and Pyramids Mbr of the Taravale Fmn of the Buchan-Murrindal area, Victoria. Biogeographic affinities are with typical Tasman Province faunas of the Molong-Monaro Terrane of SE Australia. -Authors
