Abstract

The present article describes the following bivalves of the Bohemian type from the Carnic Alps of Austria: Slavinka plicata (Barrande, 1881) from the Silurian Cardiola Formation, Ludlow, lower Ludfordian, and Praeostrea bohemica Barrande, 1881 from the lowermost Devonian, Rauchkofel Limestone, Lochkovian, Cellon Section. The presence of these bivalves at the aforementioned localities further support the close palaeogeographic relations between the Carnic Alps (Austria) and Perunica (Bohemia, Prague Basin) region during the Ludfordian and early Lochkovian.
