Gruendelella, a new Carboniferous ostracod genus from the Namurian of the Cantabrian Mountains (N. Spain)

L. C. Sanchez De Posada

Abstract. Etching limestones of Arnsbergian (Namurian A) age from the northern slope of the Cantabrian Mountains (N. Spain) has yielded a diverse ostracod fauna. One of the forms found is especially interesting as it represents a new genus ressembling in some aspects the family Rectonariidae. The new genus Gruendelella is described.
