Abstract

Conodont elements recovered from the gut region of a palaeoniscoid fish from the Gogo Formation, Upper Devonian (Frasnian), of the Canning Basin, Western Australia, are assigned to two multielement taxa. The complete apparatus of Oulodus angulatus (Hinde) has 15 elements, most of which have excellent preservation of the basal plate. An additional 13 elements are assigned to the Icriodus brevis apparatus which is not a complete apparatus. The term crown is introduced for the upper part of the conodont element. A conodont element, or element, is thus composed of two parts, the upper part or crown, and the lower part or basal plate. Four new terms - boss structure, prong, furrow and notch - are introduced to describe features of the basal plate.
