KENNEDY, William James  and  KLINGER, Herbert Christian. Cretaceous faunas from Zululand and Natal, South Africa. New records of Maastrichtian ammonites of the Family Kossmaticeratidae. Afr. nat. history (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.9, suppl., pp.55-60. ISSN 2305-7963.

Records of two ammonite species Pseudokossmaticeras pacificum (Stoliczka, 1866) and Brahmaites (Brahmaites) mikobokensis Collignon, 1971, from the St Lucia Formation of northern KwaZulu-Natal are dated as Late Maastrichtian on the basis of associated inoceramid faunas. These records suggest that the Madagascan 'Early' Maastrichtian 'Zone ä Pachydiscus neubergicus et Pachydiscus goííeviííensis', in which these species also occur, is in part Late Maastichtian.

Keywords : Cretaceous; Maastrichtian; ammonite; Pseudokossmaticeras; Brahmaites; KwaZulu-Natal; South Africa.
