Abstract :A new tabulate coral species, Syringopora konishii, is established on the basis of material from float limestones in the Tsuchikura-zawa Valley of the Kotaki area, Niigata Prefecture, central Japan, origin of which limestones is the allochthonous blocks in the melange facies of the Kotaki Formation belonging to the Hida-Gaien Terrane. The associated foraminifers suggest the age of S. konishii is late Visean (middle Early Carboniferous). Representatives of Syringopora are common components of Carboniferous tabulate coral fauna in the terrane. Paleobiogeographic significance of the new species is discussed.
