Thomas, G.A., 1954. Preliminary report of Permian brachiopod faunas of the Fitzroy Basin. Record  1954/009. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The following report is a brief preliminary outline of the Permian brachiopod faunas of the Fitzroy Basin. The collections have all been made by the Kimberley geological survey party of the Bureau of Mineral Resources from 1948 to 1952. Unfortunately many of the specimens determined or discussed in this report have been destroyed or damaged in the fire at the Bureau offices. The determinations must be regarded as provisional for some forms, as sufficient work has not yet been done, and further collecting is necessary to deal satisfactorily with others, apart from the damage sustained in the fire. As will ensue below many forms are new. It is hoped to describe them systematically from the new collections made in 1953. Some will be passed over to outside specialists. Direct comparison has been made with Carnarvon Basin collections. There is no attempt at description in this report. The collections will be treated under formation names beginning with the lowest. A discussion of ecology is being reserved until later.
