    Abstract

    Conodont faunas recovered from isolated limestone outcrops within the Barnby Hills Shale, between Larras Lee and Eurimbla, New South Wales, are shown to be of Late Silurian (eosteinhornensis Zone) age and are coeval with the lower sequence of the Camelford Limestone at Wellington. These isolated outcrops have been interpreted as having a tectonic origin due to their position adjacent to the Curra Creek Thrust and the age discrepancy between them and the surrounding Bamby Hills Shale sediments.
