Abstract

Upper Devonian sediments of the Kuh-e Zard area northwest of Zefreh, Central Iran, are
composed mainly of brown and grey limestones with sandstone and shale intercalations. They contain trace
fossils such as Chondrites isp., Diplocraterion parallelum, Fustiglyphus annulatus, Lockeia isp., Phycodes
isp., and Taenidium barretti. These trace fossils indicate a shallow marine environment
