    Abstract

    The Garra Limestone at Eurimbla, is represented by a thick sequence of richly fossiliferous, occasionally silicified, sequence of carbonates and interbedded shales cropping out sporadically from underneath alluvial cover in Loombah Creek, central western N.S.W. The articulate brachiopods, collected from 15 silicified horizons, consist of over 8,000 individual shells or disarticulated valves classified into 48 genera, 8 subgenera, 54 species and 2 subspecies. The second part of this work documents 30 taxa (Table 1) belonging to the Rhynchonellata (Rhynchonellida, Atrypida, Athryidida and Spiriferida). Ten new species are described: Latonotoechia farrelli n. sp., Desquamatia (Desquamatia) adentata n. sp., Carinatinella loombahensis n. sp., Ogilviella mesoclosma n. sp., Biconostrophia quasiconifera n. sp., ?Boucotia n. sp., Vagrania lamellosa n. sp., Lissatrypa ventrosulcata n. sp., Myriospirifer n. sp., and Eoplicoplasia cucullaria n. sp.
