A rich and diverse conodont fauna represented by fifty-six taxa belonging to fifteen genera is described from three sections (Ghale-kalaghu, Howz-e-Dorah 1 and Howz-e-Dorah 2) in the southern Shotori Range (central Iran). The association, dominated by Polygnathus, has allowed a detailed biostratigraphy across the Devonian/Carboniferous boundary interval to be constructed, ranging from the Uppermost marginifera Zone to the anchoralis-latus Zone. The D/C boundary is narrowly constrained within a condensed interval at the base of the "Mush Horizon" between the Shishtu 1 and Shishtu 2 subformations.
