Abstract

Brachiopods recently collected from the Zap River Valley area (SE Turkey) allow to establish a Middle Devonian (upper Givetian) age for the upper middle part of the Yiginli Formation which was until now considered as Famennian on the basis of its micropaleontological contents and of its relative position in the series.
