The Pennsylvanian conodont genus Gondolella Stauffer & Plummer, 1932; reinterpretation of the original type specimens and concepts

Abstract

In order to ensure stability of nomenclature among species of Gondolella, lectotypes are selected from among the cotypes (syntypes in modern usage) proposed by Stauffer & Plummer (1932) for species that it is concluded were parts of the apparatuses of two species of that genus. It is recognized that many of their specimens actually represent growth stages of individual species, and many of the names used by Stauffer & Plummer are placed in synonymy. Interpreted synonyms include not only gondolelliform P (sub 1) elements, but other parts of the apparatus, especially P (sub 2) elements assigned to Euprioniodina by Stauffer & Plummer. Thus, Gondolella bella has synonyms as P (sub 1) elements: G. curvata, G. magna, G. minuta, probably G. sp. A, S (sub 1) element Euprioniodina coronata and P (sub 2) elements: E. exserta, E. eximia and E. intertexta. In a similar manner, the type species of the genus, Gondolella elegantula, has synonyms G. insolita, G. lanceolata (P (sub 1) elements), and probably Euprioniodina sp. B (P (sub 2) element?). J. Micropalaeontol. 26(1): 41-46, April 2007.
