Three species of Desmoceratinae are described from KwaZulu-Natal/Eastern Cape Province. Desmoceras (Desmoceras) latidorsatum (Michelin, 1838) occurs in the Middle Albian to Middle Cenomanian of northern KwaZulu-Natal. Desmophyllites diphylloides (Forbes, 1846), and Damesites sugata (Forbes, 1846) occur in the Santonian to Lower Campanian Mzamba Formation of northern Eastern Cape Province. The latter also occurs in the Coniacian-Santonian part of the St Lucia Formation in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
