Abstract

The genus Cordania Clarke, 1892, has been known from the Lower Devonian (Lochkovian-Pragian) of the Appalachian Province and apparently from the Lower-Middle Devonian of China. Probable Lochkovian strata of the Biddabirra Formation in the Amphitheatre Group from near Cobar, New South Wales, Australia, have yielded Cordania buicki new species, extending the range of the genus to eastern Australia. Cladistic analysis of Cordania identifies C. buicki as more closely related to species from Oklahoma than to a northern Appalachian grade.
