Abstract

The fossils dealt with in this paper consist mainly of Silurian trilobites from the Mallee Tank Beds and include a new species Harpes nymageensis. Two new species of lamellibranchs, Kochia rayneri and Goniophora hermitagensis are described from the Barrow Range Beds which are considered to be of early Lower Devonian age. These fossils are from a large collection in the Australian Museum from many localities in the Cobar area and consists of materials from the Mallee Tank Beds, the Barrow Range Beds and the Amphitheatre Group.
