Eleven species and two subspecies in six genera of stropheodontid brachiopods are described from the Upper Llandovery (Lower Silurian) of the Welsh Borderland. Five species and one subspecies are new: Leptostrophia ostrina, L. voraginis and subspecies palustris, Amphistrophia whittardi, Pholidostrophia salopiensis, and Megastrophia ethica; the latter is also made the type of a new subgenus Eomegastrophia. New information has been gained on the phylogeny of the family.
