New Permian polyplacophora (Mollusca) from Malaysia

  • Richard D. Hoare (a1)


Extraordinarily large, thick shelled polyplacophorans occur in the Permian limestone in the province of Perak, Malaysia. Three new genera and species are proposed: Hadrochiton pileus, Pyknochiton lunatus, and Kraterochiton magnificus. The occurrence of K. magnificus extends the range of the family Acutichitonidae into the Middle Permian.
