Abstract

Faunal composition and correlation of the late Carboniferous and Permian fusulines contained in exotic limestone blocks of the Sakamototoge area, Gifu Prefecture, Japan were reconsidered. Main alterations of the previous results are summarized as: (1) Moscovian fusulines are confined to the Myachkovian; (2) many species collectively included in Triticites are attributed to Protriticites, Montiparus, Rauserites, Triticites, or Schwagerina; (3) “Triticites” faunas designated as the Carboniferous–Permian are reorganized into three faunas: Protriticites subschwagerinoides (early Kasimovian), Montiparus mesopachus-Protriticites kiyomiensis (middle Kasimovian), and Rauserites arcticus-Carbonoschwagerina nakazawai-Quasifusulina longissimi (late Kasimovian to possibly early Gzhelian); and (4) the species assigned to Pseudoschwagerina is now attributed to late Gzhelian Carbonoschwagerina, implying the probable absence of the Asselian in the area. In addition, the Capitanian Yabeina fauna heterogeneous to the coeval neoschwagerinid faunas in the Permian terranes of Japan is ascertained.
