ABSTRACT: Complete apparatuses are described for Jinogondolella aserrata, J. errata (new species), and J. postserrata (transitional from J. aserrata) from a single bed in a section of the Bell Canyon Formation exposed in the Apache Mountains, West Texas. The conodont assemblage precisely equates this bed in age to the upper part of the Pinery Limestone Member of the Bell Canyon Formation and the base of the Capitanian in its type locality in the Guadalupe Mountains. The apparatus of Jinogondolella is different from most other gondolellid genera in that it has dimorphic to polymorphic elements in the S2 position and three pairs of platform elements.
