AbstractFossiliferous volcaniclastic beds among extrusive rocks of the Middle volcanic unit of the Summerford Group at four places on New World Island indicate marine environments from beneath the euphotic zone to very shallow water around volcanic islands in the Proto-Atlantic Ocean. Of the 27 brachiopod species from calcareous tuff at Virgin Arm, six are placed in new genera, one each in new species of Atelelasma and Ahtiella, and others are assigned with varying degrees of confidence to established genera of the Baltic and Scoto-Appalachian biogeographic provinces. Comparison is closest with the late Arenig brachiopods of Anglesey, northwestern Wales, suggesting extension of the Celtic biogeographic province to include such peri-insular occurrences.
