The new brachiopod genus Eiratrypa and the genus Clintonella from the Lower Silurian (Llandovery) of Baltica
102

A new brachiopod genus, Eiratrypa, is defined and named. The genus occurs in Laurentia, Baltica, Avalonia and the Gornyi-Altai terrane on the margin of Siberia. Previously, the cosmopolitan brachiopod genus Clintonella was not well known, so the species Clintonella aprinis from Estonia was sectioned, confirming that it is an atrypid aligning closely to the subfamily Clintonellinae within the Atrypidae family.
