|Title:||HEPATICITES IPORANGAE N. SP., RIO BONITO FORMATION, EARLY PERMIAN (SAKMARIAN), PARANA BASIN, BRAZIL, WESTERN GONDWANA|
|Abstract:||The formal description of a liverwort from the Parana Basin is presented. The fossil was found in the Rio Bonito Formation, Early Permian (Sakmarian), and is identified as a new species of the genus Hepaticites, named H. iporangae n. sp. The samples studied were collected from the macrofossil-rich roof-shale layer of the Quiteria Outcrop in the municipality of Encruzilhada do Sul, state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. H. iporangae is one of the oldest liverworts reported from South America. The fossil described here provides more evidence of the relative diversity of liverworts in Paleozoic Gondwana despite the severe climatic conditions during the glaciations of the Permo-Carboniferous.|
