Korn, Dieter


Armatites kaufmanni n. sp. is described from an early Famennian (Late Devonian) occurrence of Braunau (Ense near Bad Wildungen) in the Rhenish Mountains Germany). It is the first goniatitic ammonoid with ventral shell extensions in the form of two rows of prominent, laterally flattened spines.
