Fourteen brachiopod species belonging to the following genera are described from
the middle Lower Devonian (Siegenian) Point Hibbs Limestone, Tasmania: Schizophoria,
Isorthis, Cymostrophia, Megastrophia, Hipparionyx (?) ,"Chonetes" Machaeraria, Uncinulus,
Hebeotoechia, Atrypa, Meristella, Athyris, Cyrtina, and Acrospirifer.
Megastrophia hillae sp. nov., Hebeotoechia hibbensis sp. nov., and Acrospirifer banksi
sp. nov. are erected. This fauna displays close affinity to faunas recorded from the
Coopers Creek Formation, the Lilydale Limestone, and the Tabberabbera Formation of
Victoria, and the Baton River Beds of New Zealand.
