Abstract A quantitative investigation of the ecological changes of shallow-marine benthos was undertaken at the Permian–Triassic boundary section at Zhongzhai, South China. The studied fossil material primarily included brachiopods and bivalves owing to their abundance throughout the section, but other subordinate taxonomic groups including ostracods and microgastropods were also integrated for discussion. Overall, a succession of three benthonic paleocommunities was recognized representing thre...

Abstract Research on the dynamics of body-size changes in varied water depths can provide important insights into the evolution of palaeoenvironments through time. This paper attempts to investigate how the body sizes of two most commonly found chonetid brachiopod species in the uppermost Permian in South China varied with palaeo-bathymetry. The result shows that there is a broadly negative correlation between the latest Permian brachiopod body size and water depth. There is no simple singular v...

The global palaeobiogeographic distributions of two resembling genera, Neochonetes and Fusichonetes (Brachiopoda), from the Carboniferous to Griesbachian are analysed. This analysis provides insight into the biotic response of two related genera to changing palaeoclimate, regional tectonics, and environmental crises. Neochonetes originated in the equatorial area in the Mississippian, and it mostly retained this position during the peak of the glaciation in the Carboniferous–Permian ice age (name...

This paper has undertaken a quantitative and statistical analysis of brachiopod body-size changes through the marine Permian–Triassic boundary section at Zhongzhai, Guizhou Province, South China, and found that (1) pre-mass extinction dwarfing is evident for at least the rugosochonetid species chosen for this study; (2) Tethyochonetes species reduced their size earlier than that in the Neochonetes species; and (3) no significant size reduction occurred in the newly evolved species of these two g...

Abstract. This paper describes a new genus Liaous, with L. shaiwensis He and Chen n. gen. n. sp. as the type species, from the Xinyuan Formation of Anisian age in Ziyun, southern Guizhou, China. The phylogenetic tree revealed by the parsimony analysis shows that Liaous is closely allied to both Mentzelia Quenstedt, 1871 and Paramentzelia Xu, 1978 of the subfamily Mentzeliinae. A new classification scheme for the Spiriferinoidea is also proposed based on a phylogenetic tree of the superfamily ind...

This paper describes 45 brachiopod species (including 15 undetermined species) in 23 genera belonging to seven orders (Productida, Spiriferida, Athyridida, Orthida, Orthotetida, Rhynchonellida and Lingulida) from the Talung Formation (Changhsingian, latest Permian) of the marine deep-water facies of South China. Two new genera are proposed: Chaohochonetes and Parapygmochonetes; along with nine new species: Tethyochonetes rectangularis, Tethyochonetes? sinuata, Chaohochonetes triangusinuata, Neoc...
