Abstract

This Bulletin describes the brachiopod fauna of the Devonian and Carboniferous (Frasnian to early Namurian) platform sediments of the Bonaparte Gulf Basin in northwestern Australia (Fig. 1). It is part of a comprehensive study of the Bonaparte Gulf Basin begun by the Bureau of Mineral Resources in 1963, and follows an earlier study by Thomas (1970), started in the mid-1950's, on brachiopods from the Carnarvon, Canning, and Bonaparte Gulf Basins. Thomas's material from the Bonaparte Gulf Basin, with the exception of that from the Septimus Limestone at Mount Septimus, came largely from samples collected in reconnaissance surveys. Other earlier work on brachiopods from the Bonaparte Gulf Basin includes that of Veevers (1959b) on rhynchonellids and a productacean, and Thomas (1965) on Delepinea. A comprehensive description of the Devonian and Carboniferous geology of the basin is given by Veevers, Roberts (1968).
