AnewupperKatian(KralodvorianRegionalStage)benthicassociationfromtheRibadeCimaMemberoftheFerradosa Formation,Portugal,isdescribed.Itisdominatedbybryozoansandechinodermsbutbrachiopodsandtrilobitesarealso present.Morethan20speciesofbrachiopods,nineoftrilobitesandeightofechinodermshavebeenidentifiedinthefour studied localities. Among the brachiopods Kjaerina (Villasina) meloui Colmenar, 2016, Dolerorthis abeirensis Mélou, 1990 and Bicuspina cf. armoricana Mélou, 1990 are significant. These species were previously recorded only in the uppermostRosanFormation(ArmoricanMassif,France).PorambonitesdreyfussiHavlí?ek,1981isalsoreportedinthis paperforthefirsttimebesidesitstypehorizonintheupperpartoftheKralodvorianGabianFormation(MontagneNoire, France). Most of the identified trilobite taxa were previously documented only in the Kralodvorian Cystoid Limestone Formation (Iberian Chains, Spain), except Parillaenus? cf. creber Hammann, 1992 and Amphoriops cf. inflatus (Hammann,1992),whosereferredspeciesarealsopresentintheupperBerounian–KralodvorianPortixedduFormation in Sardinia.
