Like MF1, it also includes skeletal detritus of bryozoan, crinoids, ostracods and brachiopod
After the opportunistic strategy conducted by Soaresirhynchia bouchardi the distribution of the post-ETMEE brachiopod
assemblages is markedly influenced by the depositional sequences, entailing premature turnovers and involving the earlier record of homeomorphic morphotypes of younger terebratulides and rhynchonellides.

The maximum width (mm) of each tagged brachiopod
was measured to the nearest 0.5 mm using vernier calipers.

The present research was aimed at introducing Late Permian brachiopods
in stratigraphic section so as to determine their age and stratigraphic correlation as well as stratigraphically examining the value of recognizing brachiopod
fossils (Figure 2).
Astonishingly, abundance did not help brachiopod
species persist for extended periods outside of the extinction event.
The phosphatized examples, in contrast, are elongate to round in outline and variably 'segmented' or spiriform; one specimen contains numerous brachiopod
shell fragments and was clearly produced by a predator or scavenger.
Although the systematic position of that brachiopod
is uncertain, its shell structure is of interest as it differs from those of the other Cambrian lingulate brachiopods
identified in the same region.
