Abstract
    The authors describe the Frasnian gypidulid brachiopods from the Holy Cross Mountains (Poland) with special emphasis on their stratigraphic distribution. Among the five taxa distinguished, Physemella christinae is new, two are identified as Metabolipa cf. greindli (MAILLIEUX, 1909) and Neometabolipa duponti GODEFROID, 1974 and two others are provisionally named Novozemelia? sp. W and Neometabolipa ? sp. G. The Polish gypidulids reveal close affinities to those of the Dinant Synclinorium (Belgium) and the recognized successional replacement of characteristic genera and species in the latter area appears to be a supraregional pattern. A preliminary three-step sequence of gypidulid faunas (in ascending order: Novozemelia ?, Metabolipa and Neometabolipa) is outlined for the Frasnian of both regions. Its importance for correlations and age-inferences in conodont-poor, reef-related facies is clearly demonstrated by the examples from the Holy Cross Mountains.
