Abstract

In this paper the genus Nuculana occurring in the Permian rocks of Australia is revised. Generic rank is given to a well defined group of these shells with a characteristic and bizarre ornamentation under the name Glyptoleda. The stratigraphy of the Silverwood-Lucky Valley Permian succession has been reinterpreted on additional palaeontological evidence.
