Abstract
    The recovery of the ostracod fauna is rapid after the Late Devonian mass extinction in the Devils Gate Pass section and fifty-nine species have been recognised in the Early Famennian. Forty-five appear for the first time, whereas fourteen others are known from the Late Frasnian (= lazarus species). The ostracod distribution in the Early Famennian at Devils Gate is greatly influenced by regional sedimentological factors principally induced by a drastic sea-level eustatic fall.
