Abstract

This Bulletin is the first part of a monograph on the Upper Cretaceous Ammonoidea of the Carnarvon Basin, and deals with the Heteromorph Lytoceratina of Santon-Campanian and Maastrichtian age. It is proposed to subdivide the Heteromorph Lytoceratina further by removing a number of genera from Turrilitaceae to form a new superfamily Diplomocerataceae. It is shown that Diplomocerataceae are derived from Cicatritidae, whereas Turrilitaceae stem from Macroscaphitidae. Diplomocerataceae are represented in Western Australia by the genera Hyphantoceras Hyatt, Diplomoceras Spath, Bostrychoceras Hyatt, and Eudiplomoceras nov.; Turrilitaceae by Baculites Lamarck, Eubaculites Spath, Giralites nov., Eubaculiceras nov., Cardabites nov., Nostoceras Hyatt, Glyptoxoceras Spath, and Neohamites novo Scaphitaceae are represented by a single specimen of a new species of lndoscaphites Spath. Thirty species of the above 13 genera are described, 17 of which are new.
