Abstract

Significant new occurrences of Devonian articulate brachiopods retaining color patterns including Stringocephalus burtini Defrance from the Givetian of southern England with both concentric and radial bands, an undetermined stringocephalid brachiopod with concentric bands from the Givetian of the western Brooks Range, Alaska, Beachia cf. B. thunii (Clarke) from the mid-Early Devonian Oriskany Sandstone of Schoharie, New York, with a prominent pair of radial color bands, and Athyris vittata Hall from the early Givetian Ferron Point Formation of Michigan with numerous radial color bands are illustrated. The presence of preserved color patterns is documented for the first time in members of the family Stringocephalidae King and in the family Athyrididae McCoy.
