Abstract

KENNEDY, William James  and  KLINGER, Herbert Christian. Hypermorphosis in Salaziceras, a Cretaceous ammonite, from Madagascar. Afr. nat. history (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.4, pp. 112-116. ISSN 1816-8396.

An enigmatic ammonite from Mont Raynaud, Madagascar, originally referred to the Upper Cenomanian Calycoceras (Calycoceras ) naviculare (Mantell, 1822) is associated with an exclusively upper Upper Albian fauna. It is interpreted as a new, hypermorphic giant species of Salaziceras Breistroffer, 1936, S. lemoinei.

Keywords : Cretaceous; ammonite; Salaziceras; Hypermorphosis; Albian; Madagascar.
