Two new rhynchonelliform brachiopods from the Albian stratotype region (Paris Basin) – focusing


Danièle Gaspard


Two new Rhynchonellide brachiopods from the Albian stratotype region (Paris Basin) (Dipoloceas cristatum zone), analyzed according to their external morphology and internal characters completed by the observation of their corresponding microstructure, are set apart from a cluster of specimens previously recognized as Rhynchonella sulcata d’Orbigny. They correspond to Lamellaerhynchia carronensis n. sp. (Cyclothyrididae) and Burrirhynchia albiensis n. sp. (Tetrarhynchiidae) brought up and described in this context, in respect to the demand of the amended article 8.6 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. This article concerns works published after 1999 which does not make use of printing edition. Therefore, these two species previously figured by Gaspard (2010a, paper version) then described and figured by Gaspard (2010b) in a joint CD-ROM of the collective edition entitled “Stratotype Albien”, will be definitively available in this printing version.
