Abstract

The Early Carboniferous ammonoid Dombarites taishakuensis sp. nov. is described from the Dangyokei Formation, which is the lowermost formation of the Taishaku Limestone in the Akiyoshi Belt, Southwest Japan. This is the first described ammonoid from the Taishaku Limestone and the first record of the genus Dombarites from the Panthalassa region. The age of D. taishakuensis is probably early Serpukhovian based on the ages of morphologically similar species of Dombarites.
