Chatterton, B.D.E., 1973. Brachiopods of the Murrumbidgee Group, Taemas, New South Wales. Bulletin  137. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The Devonian limestones of the Taemas-Cavan area crop out in a northtrending synclinorium, about 25 km southwest of Yass and about 55 km northnorthwest of Canberra, in the southeastern part of New South Wales (Text-fig. 1). The Devonian rocks of this structure, consisting of limestone units of the Cavan and Taemas Formations and shale and sandstone of the Majurgong Formation, belong to the lower to upper Emsian (? to Eifelian) Murrumbidgee Group. The two units on which the work reported here concentrates, the 'Receptaculites' Limestone and the Warroo Limestone, were selected because they contain rich. and well preserved faunas. A comprehensive collection of brachiopods from part of the Murrumbidgee Group of the Yass area, New South Wales, confirms the late Emsian age of the upper part of the Group. They flourished in a shallow vigorous sea. Of the 46 species and subspecies described, belonging to 35 genera, 6 genera, 34 species, and the subspecies are new. It has been possible to trace the ontogeny of many species.
