Abstract

A new upper Tournaisian (Lower Carboniferous) siphonodellid conodont species Siphonodella carinata n. sp. is described. The material comes from the shallow-water carbonate sediments of the Pechora Swell (Timan-Pechora region or NE of European Russia). The co-occurrence of conodonts Hindeodus cristulus (Youngquist & Miller), Bispathodus stabilis (Branson & Mehl) Morphotype 1, Polygnathus longiposticus Branson & Mehl and Pseudopolygnathus nodomarginatus (Branson) suggests the late Tournaisian (Lower Siphonodella crenulata Zone) age of the deposits. Morphologically the new species is similar to Siphonodella semichatovae Kononova & Lipnjagov and S. ludmilae Zhuravlev & Plotitsyn, but differs in possessing three rostral ridges at the late stages of ontogeny and Class III symmetry. The presence of the shallow-water siphonodellids Siphonodella bella Kononova & Migdisova and S. quasinuda Gagiev, Kononova & Pazuhin in the upper part of the Tournaisian is detected for the first time.

Keywords
