Cooper, G. Arthur. Brachiopoda from the Southern Indian Ocean (Recent). Smithsonian Contributions to Paleobiology, number 43, 93 pages, 30 figures, 14 plates, 1 table, 1981.—Specimens collected from 120 stations around and between the subantarctic islands: Marion, Prince Edward, Crozet, Kerguelen, Heard, Amsterdam, and St. Paul by the M/S Marion Dufresne with the support of Terres Australes et Antarctiques Francaises, Paris, greatly increase our knowledge of the brachiopoda of the Indian Ocean. Eighteen species are recognized that include 16 genera, 2 of them new: Pemphixina and Xenobrochus; 11 new species: Basiliola arnaudi; Eucalathis magna, E. costellata, E. rotundata, Xenobrochus australis, X. anomalus; Dallithyris? dubia; Dyscolia? radiata, Platidia marionensis; Ecnomiosa inexpectata, and Thecidellina minuta. Seven hitherto described species are recorded: Pelagodiscus atlanticus (King); Pemphixina pyxidata (Davidson); Liothyrella moseleyi (Davidson); Megerlina davidsoni (Velain); Megerlia gigantea (Deshayes); Aerothyris kerguelenensis (Davidson), and A. aff. A. macquariensis (Thomson). Six genera, which could not be identified specifically, were also taken: Crania, Basiliola, Tegulorhynchia, Eucalathis, Liothyrella, and Aerothyris. Genera recognized in the Indian Ocean for the first time are: Tegulorhynchia, Basiliola, and Ecnomiosa, the last hitherto known only from the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea.
