The Santonian and Campanian inoceramids from the Houthalen mineshaft (Limburg, NE Belgium) are described. Four successive faunas were distinguished: the Sphenoceramus pachti fauna, dated for the Middle Santonian, the Sphenoceramus patootensiformis fauna, of the upper Upper Santonian - lower Lower Campanian, the Cordiceramus paraheberti fauna, possibly of the upper Lower Campanian, and the Inoceramus tenuilineatus fauna, characteristic for the middle Upper Campanian. The appearance of the latter fauna marks one of the main turnover events in the evolution of the Campanian inoceramids.

The revised geological log and the biostratigraphy of the Late Campanian and earliest Maastrichtian succession of the Middle Vistula River section, central Poland, are presented. The biostratigraphy is based on inoceramid fauna, basically newly collected. Eight inoceramid zones were distinguished, corresponding, in ammonite/belemnite terms, to an interval from the upper Bostrychoceras polyplocum Zone up to the traditional Belemnella occidentalis Zone. From bottom upwards these are zones of: Cata...

De quelques charbonnages du Limbourg belge (Houthalen et ZolderVoort) une faunule d'ammonites, belemnites et inocerames a ete etudiee. Les nannofossiles des echantillons d'ammonites ont ete identifies. L'assemblage est d'âge Santonien moyen (superieur) a superieur et peut ainsi etre compare a la «Craie de Lonzee» (province de Namur, Belgique) et a la Formation d'Aix-la-Chapelle de la region d'Aix-laChapelle - Vaals (SE des Pays-Bas et Allemagne)

Stratigraphy, inoceramid paleontology and facies characteristics of the Turonian through Santonian deposits of the Central Polish Uplands are presented, on the basis of which 17 inoceramid zones are recognized and their position against the ammonite standard division is discussed. Apart from the Middle/Upper Santonian and Santonian/Campanian boundary all other stage and substage boundaries are well recognizable with the inoceramid fauna. Most of the inoceramids, comprising about 40 species, assi...

Abstract Recently collected material, in fine- to medium-grained biocalcarenites and in coeval flint nodules, of the tegulated inoceramid taxa Spyridoceramus tegulatus (von Hagenow, 1842) and Tenuipteria argentea (Conrad, 1858) from various members of the Gulpen Formation and the overlying Maastricht Formation allows their stratigraphical ranges to be refined. It is concluded that the ranges correspond closely to those in east-central Poland (Vistula [Wisla] River valley region), where S. tegula...

Thirty three species of Inoceramidae, of which two are new, are described from KwaZulu. They fall into four zonal assemblages that can be correlated with sequences recognized elsewhere : the Cataceramus flexus Zone and the 'Inoceramus' tenuilineatus Zone are referred to the lower Upper Campanian. The Trochoceramus radiosus Zone is referred to the upper Lower Maastrichtian. The 'Inoceramus' ianjonaensis Zone is referred to the lower Upper Maastrichtian, and represents the youngest known assemblag...

Abstract The ammonite and inoceramid bivalve faunas of the Davutlar Formation of the Devrekani–Kastamonu area in central-north Turkey, are described. The formation yields an ammonite assemblage of Pseudophyllites indra (Forbes, 1846), Pachydiscus ( Pachydiscus ) haldemsis (Schluter, 1867), Pachydiscus ( Pachydiscus ) oldhami (Sharpe, 1855), Didymoceras binodosum (Kennedy and Cobban, 1993), Bostrychoceras polyplocum (Roemer, 1841) and Baculites alavensis Santamaria Zabala, 1996. The inoceramid as...
