The same pattern of several diversification pulses of merely 1-2 Ma durations have also been reported in other taxonomic groups, such as conodonts
, benthic foraminifers, and ichnofaunas (see Romano et al.
Our focus in this study is on the conodonts
that we extracted from this geographically restricted lens of shale overlying the Bucktown Coal.
from elements contained in the biozone were assigned to the following: Prioniodella prioniodellides, Hindeodella multihamat, Hindeodella nevadensis, Lonchodina nevadensis, Hindeodella triassica, Ligonodina triassica, Diplodella lautissima, Pachycladina oblique, Hadrodontina anceps, Ellisonia triassica, Hibardella subsymmertica, Parachirognathus geiseri, Prioniodella decrescens, Enantiognathus bitortus, Chirognathus sp.

Kozur (1990b) established this genus for conodonts
exhibiting a gondolellid apparatus in which the platform elements display a subterminal pit, marginal ridges on the otherwise flat keel, and a distinct free blade.
Researchers from the University of Birmingham in England have identified a second group that reaches back to the time of conodonts
, perhaps slightly earlier.
London, December 22 ( ANI ): Marine animal groups like ammonoids and conodonts
already peaked three or four million years earlier, namely still during the Ear-ly Triassic, researchers say.
More lately conodonts
are used as parallel fossil markers.

Processing of additional outcrop and subsurface samples of the Bass Islands for conodonts
could provide the solution to the Bass Islands identity crisis.
