KENNEDY, William James  and  KLINGER, Herbert Christian. Cretaceous faunas from Zululand and Natal, South Africa. The ammonite genera Mojsisovicsia Steinmann, 1881, Dipoloceroides Breistroffer, 1947, and Falloticeras Parona & Bonarelli, 1897. Afr. nat. history (Online) [online]. 2012, vol.8, pp.01-15. ISSN 2305-7963.

Mojsisovicsia ventanillensis (Gabb, 1877), Dipoloceroides delaruei (d'Orbigny, 1841), D. semicornutum (Spath, 1931), D. cornutum (Pictet, 1847) and Falloticeras proteus (d'Orbigny, 1842) are described from the Middle Albian Mzinene Formation of northern KwaZulu-Natal. The interpretation of micromorph species associated with these taxa is reviewed, and duerfeldi of Steinmann, 1881, is interpreted as the microconch of ventanillensis as a working hypothesis. The status of proteus as either microconch or micromorph is unresolved.

Keywords : ammonites; Albian; micromorphs; KwaZulu-Natal; South Africa.
