Abstract: A fragmentary brachial valve identified as Prionothyris? cf. P. ovalis (Hall), from the Oriskany sandstone of Oneida County, New York, retains traces of radial color-markings. It is noteworthy for being the first reported occurrence of color markings in the Family Centronellidae and one of the oldest-known brachiopods with preserved color markings. The fossil is preserved in the U.S. National Museum as no. 170563.
