Devonian and carboniferous brachiopods and bivalves of the Djado sub-basin (North Niger, SW Libya)

Journal of the Czech Geological Society, volume 46 (2001), issue 3-4, 169 - 188


A limited collection of brachiopods and bivalves was collected from the Djado sub-basin (southern extension of the Murzuq Basin: SW Libya and North Niger). Twenty brachiopod (mostly productids and spiriferids) and six bivalve species could be determined. Among the brachiopods, one is described as a new (Rhynchopora magnifica sp. nov.). Brachiopods reflect affinity to the North American faunas, especially among the productids.
