Abstract


e Kamar-e-Mehdi Formation (Callovian – Oxfordian) is the ll of a shelf lagoon situated in the western


and central parts of the so-called Tabas Block for a N-S distance of 200-300 km. From the predominantly ne-grained


carbonates, which in the depocenter reach more than 1000 m in thickness, 69 taxa of bivalves are described, which


dier greatly in their preservation depending on their original shell mineralogy. Aragonitic taxa are only preserved as


internal or composite moulds, whereas calcitic taxa occur in shell preservation. New to science is the pectinid Camp-


tonectes (Grandinectes) teres subgen. nov. et sp. nov. and the pholadomyid Agrawalimya tubularis sp. nov. Most of the


taxa are common also in the Middle und Upper Jurassic of Europe. Exceptions are the genera Agrawalimya, which so


far is known only from the Callovian of Kachchh, western India, and Neoburmesia, which is solely known from Japan.
