    Abstract

    The Dunquin Group is part of a Siluro-Devonian succession of sedimentary and volcaniclastic rocks that document the final stages of the closure of the lapetus Ocean. Lower parts of the Dunquin Group have been dated as late Wenlock (Homerian) by their included brachiopod and coral faunas. A first graptolite find, Monograptus flemingii warreni, low in the Dunquin Group suggests a Homerian (lundgreni Biozone) age for this part of the succession.
