The main idea of this book is to describe a transitional Horizon and a transitional brachiopod fauna between the Early Permian and Late Permian of the Tonglu area in the west Zhejiang, I. e. the Lengwu Formation and Lengwu brachiopod fauna. By the detail studies, analysis's and contrasts for the new horizon and fauna put forward a scheme to divide the Permian System of south China into three groups and six chronostratigraphical units. The writer has furnished large numbers of fossil materials of brachiopods and has described 106 genera and 235 species with 30new genera and 153 new species included in this monograph. In this basis, especially the discovery of punctate produtoids, writer has made a try in the classification of brachiopods and has erected four new subclasses under the two traditional classes. In addition, he has divided the Lengwu brachiopod fauna into two assemblages and four ecological communities, and has made detail discussion for this fauna's relations of universe and its character of geographical provincialism.
