Abstract

Leptocoeliid brachiopods from the Early Devonian Baruntehua Formation of Dong Ujimqin Qi, northeastern Inner Mongolia were assigned to Leptocoelia by Su (1976) and Zhang (1983), and subsequently to Pacificocoelia by Hou & Boucot (1990). Transverse serial sections of Paciftcocoelia sinica are illustrated here, for the first time, based on topotype specimens. The known geographic range of Pacificocoelia is from northern China, North America, South America and Kazakhstan (Eastern Americas Realm and also occurs in east-central Asia). Atlanticocoelia is regarded here as a junior synonym of Pacificocoelia.
