Abstract：《Phanerozoic Brachiopod Genera of China》 was published in 2017. This book consists of two volumes with nine geochronological divisions from the Cambrian to Cretaceous. It provides a comprehensive revision and taxonomic update of all genera that are based on their type species from China established from 1883 to 2015. Altogether, there are 757 genera in 15 orders and nearly 200 families, of which 452 are treated as valid. Diagnoses, comparisons, assigned species, and temporal and spatial distributions of all genera are thoroughly reviewed, and faunal successions and palaeobiogeography of each geologic period are presented. Notes on macroevolution of the brachiopods of China, including the Cambrian explosion, the Great Ordovician biodiversification, the end-Ordovician, Frasnian-Famennian and end-Permian mass extinctions, the Middle Triassic radiation and the origination of some major groups of brachiopods are afforded in brief. Nearly all the relevant type specimens are illustrated in 125 plates. This book provides the most complete and consistent dataset of all brachiopod genera based on the Chinese materials. It will be of interest to palaeontologists, geologists and biologists who wish to learn the Chinese brachiopods and their bearings on biostratigraphy, biogeography and other related areas.
