An Early Carboniferous brachiopod fauna consisting of three species, Dictyoclostus sp. (Productidina), Finospirifer sp. (Spiriferidina) and Syringothyris sp. (Spiriferinidina), is described from a tuffaceous limestone in the upper part of the Dangyokei ormation (the lowest formation of the Taishaku Limestone) in the Wada area, Jinsekikogen-cho, Jinsekigun, Hiroshima Prefecture, southwest Japan. The Wada fauna is assigned a (probably late) Visean age. This is the first report of Early Carboniferous brachiopods from the Taishaku Limestone.
