We record the discovery of Coleia Broderip (Eryonoidea: Coleiidae) from the Nakatsuka Formation, Mine Group, Upper Triassic of Japan. The specimens were collected from shales exposed at Tsubuta, Sanyo-cho (Yamaguchi Prefecture). Coleia co-occurs there with fragments of a penaeoid, bivalves, Halobia spp., ammonites, and plants.
