A description is given of a variety of borings and signs of predation which occurred either during the life or after the death of some Visean brachiopods. These structures, thought to have been produced by sponges, bryozoans, gastropods, and fish are of interest as indicators of environment and of the type of death assemblage met within these rocks.
