Formatted abstract A detailed biostratigraphic study has been made of an area totalling approximately 30 sq. miles in the vicinity of Cania, on the western part of the Yarrol Basin, to the north-west of Monto. The Upper Palaeozoic sediments have been divided into 12 formations and 10 biostratigraphic assemblage zones, ranging in age from Upper Devonian to Lower Permian; the lower Permian strata are disconformable on the Lower Carboniferous. Most of the Upper Devonian and Lower Carboniferous brachiopod faunas are described, including three new genera Filicosta, Tournaispirifer and Melvirhynchus.

Lower Carboniferous biostratigraphy of the eastern part of the Yarrol basin has been studied briefly, in the vicinity of Dakiel to the north-east of Monto, and a comparison is made with the biostratigraphy of the Cania district. Several Visean and Middle Carboniferous species are described. Faunal evidence suggests that a disconformity separates the Middle Carboniferous from the Lower Carboniferous.

The composite Upper Palaeozoic biostratigraphic succession of the Cania-Dakiel districts is compared with that in other parts of the Yarrol Basin.
