Abstract


The majority of the macrofossils from the two faunas are systematically described; the following new taxa are introduced: the bivalve Eonuculoma babini n. gen. et sp., the orthoceratids Chebbioceras erfoudense n. gen. et sp., Infundibuloceras brevimira n. gen. et sp. and Plagiostomoceras hassichebbiense n. sp., the bactritoid Cyrtobactrites scheffoldi n. sp., the ammonoid Metabactrites ernsti n. sp., and the machaerid Aulakolepos rugatus n. sp., the phyllocarids Nahecaris jannae n. sp.and N. malvinae n. sp. as well as the edrioasteroid Rhenopyrgus flos n. sp. The latter taxa represent the first records of the families Pyrgocystidae, Lepidocoleidae and of phyllocarid carapaces from Africa.
