KENNEDY, William James  y  KLINGER, Herbert Christian. Cretaceous faunas from Zululand and Natal, South Africa. The ammonite family Forbesiceratidae Wright, 1952. Afr. nat. history (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.4, pp. 117-130. ISSN 1816-8396.

Members of the cosmopolitan Cenomanian ammonite family Forbesiceratidae were already recorded from KwaZulu by G.C. Crick in 1907. Since that time, six additional specimens have been found. The species present are: F. largilliertianum (d'Orbigny, 1841), F. beaumontianum (d'Orbigny, 1841), F. chevillei (Pictet & Renevier, 1866) (of which F. sculptum Crick, 1907, and F. nodosum Crick, 1907, are synonyms); F. cf. subobtectum (Stoliczka, 1864), and Forbesiceras sp. An annotated list of described species of Forbesiceras is provided, as are figures of key species from Madagascar, including the type material of Neopulchellia Collignon, 1929, a subjective synonym of Forbesiceras.

Palabras clave : ammonites; Forbesiceratidae; Cretaceous; KwaZulu-Natal; South Africa.
