Abstract

This paper describes a Kungurian (early Permian) brachiopod fauna consisting of 16 species in 16 genera from the lower part of the Nabeyama Formation of Ogama in the Kuzu area, Ashio Mountains (Mino Belt), central Japan. The fauna includes a new species, Acritosia ogamensis. The Ogama fauna is a tropical Panthalassan fauna showing strong affinity with the Wolfcampian—Leonardian (early Permian) fauna of West Texas, USA.
