Abstract

The extinct polyneopterous family Lemmatophoridae Sellards, 1909 includes eight species found in the Wellington Formation of Kansas. Tasch and Zimmerman (1962) had previously reported the presence of Lemmatophora typa Sellards, 1909, Artinska clara Sellards, 1909, and Lisca minuta Sellards, 1909, from the Oklahoma Wellington Formation. One specimen each of the species Artinska ovata (Sellards, 1909) and Paraprisca fragilis (Sellards, 1909) have been found in the Wellington Formation deposits of Noble County Oklahoma, bringing to five the number of known species of lemmatophorids common to the Oklahoma and Kansas Permian deposits.
