The lingulid brachiopod Lingularia? notialis sp. nov. is described from the upper Turonian (Cretaceous) of the Sergipe Basin in northeastern Brazil. The rare but well-preserved new material shows morphological characters such as muscle scars, mantle canals and a baculate shell structure. In a preliminary note L.? notialis was referred to Lingularia? bagualensis (Wilckens, 1905) from the uppermost Cretaceous of southern Patagonia, a species restudied here and referred conditionally to Credolingula Smirnova in Smirnova and Ushatinskaya, 2001.
