Resumo

KLINGER, Herbert Christian  e  MALCHUS, Nikolaus. The first record of Agerostrea ungulata (von Schlotheim, 1813) (Bivalvia: Ostreoidea) from the upper Maastrichtian of KwaZulu, South Africa, with a discussion of its distribution in southeast Africa and Madagascar. Afr. nat. history (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.4, pp. 11-16. ISSN 1816-8396.

Recent (2005) excavations for expansions to the harbour at Richards Bay, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, yielded a single specimen of the ostreid Agerostrea ungulata (von Schlotheim, 1813). This is the first, and thus far only, record of this species from the Upper Maastrichtian of South Africa. Its distribution in southeast Africa and Madagascar is discussed.
