New record of the inarticulate brachiopod genus Discinisca from the Upper Triassic (Carnian) of the Julian Alps, NW Slovenia
The inarticulate brachiopod genus Discinisca Dall, 1871 has been identified in the Upper Triassic (Carnian) bituminous cherty limestones of the Julian Alps, NW Slovenia that were deposited in an oxygen depleted environment with a high sedimentation rate on an intraplatform basin. The collection represents both ventral and dorsal valves which are relatively large, ornamented by faint radial lines and growth lines. The described here Discinisca cf. zapfei from Slovenia by its delicate radial ornamentation resembles D. zapfei Radwański & Summesberger, 2001 from the Upper Triassic of the Northern Calcareous Alps, Austria, differing in the position of the apex.
