A tabular review of the Lower Carboniferous (Mississippian) brachiopods from Germany is given combined with data on their stratigraphic and palaeogeographic distribution. A complete revision proved impossible since too many groups are in need of an extensive reassessment, and many species are poorly known due to their inadequate preservation. Many species are accompanied by comments on their taxonomic status as an explanation of the current state of knowledge.
