The cosmopolitan ammonite genus Douvilleiceras de Grossouvre, 1894, is the commonest ammonite in the Lowerand lower Middle Albian in northern KwaZulu-Natal. Two variable, dimorphic species, D, mammillatum (Schlotheim, 1813) and D. inaequinodum (Quenstedt, 1849) are recognized, of which the majority of previously named taxa referred to the genus are regarded as synonyms.

Keywords : Cretaceous; ammonite; Albian; Douvilleiceratinae; KwaZulu-Natal; South Africa.
