Carboniferous and Triassic conodonts from Syrian boreholes

Samira Husri and Ronald L. Austin

Abstract. A sparse but important collection of conodonts recovered from four boreholes in north-eastern and central Syria contains Neogondolella mombergensis, which is the first record of Triassic conodonts from Syria. The Carboniferous rocks are characterised by species of Gnathodus which indicate the presence of late Tournaisian to late Viséan strata.
