Abstract

The terebratulide genus Petria Mendes, 1961 was described for a group of cryptonelloid brachiopods (Brachiopoda, Terebratulida) from the Carboniferous (Pennsylvanian) of the Amazonian region, Brazil. To our knowledge only the type species Waldheimia coutinhoana Derby, 1874 was placed in the genus. The genus name Petria Mendes, 1961 is pre-occupied by Petria Semenov, 1893, a genus in the Coleoptera family Tenebrionidae.
