Abstract

Algerina gen. nov. (Bivalvia, Spanilidae Kříž, 2007), with its type species Algerina algena sp. nov., is described from the Silurian (lower Ludlow) of Algeria, western Hoggar Mountains, Ahnet Massif and the Ougarta Range. The new genus is also known from the upper Wenlock of France, the Montagne Noire [Algerina chaubetae (Kříž, 1996)], and from the lower Ludlow of Italy, the Carnic Alps [Algerina cocco (Kříž, 1999)]. Algerina rebellis (Barrande, 1881) is known from the lower Ludlow and Algerina faba (Barrande, 1881) from the middle Ludlow of Bohemia, Prague Basin. Algerina faba is also known from the lower Ludlow of the Tajmyr Basin, Russia.
