Abstract:

A new genus of the Corythoecidae (Albaillellaria, Radiolaria) was recovered from the Changhsingian (uppermost Permian) Dalong Formation in Guizhou Province, South China. Qiania Ito and Feng, gen. nov., containing Q. foremanae Ito and Feng, gen. et sp. nov. and Q. uncinata (Rudenko and Panasenko), is characterized by a conical shell consisting of an apical portion and an inflated region with a lateral foramen on the ventral side. The Corythoecidae were thought to range from the Late Devonian to Guadalupian (middle Permian). Therefore, this new find suggests the presence of this family until the latest Permian. Compilation of previous occurrences of corythoecids, in addition to those of Qiania, showed that most corythoecids including Qiania occurred in phosphate-rich facies, and that Qiania occurred in deeper facies than other corythoecids.
