The Late Devonian ammonoid Mimimitoceras in the Anti-Atlas of Morocco

Korn, Dieter; Bockwinkel, Jürgen; Ebbighausen, Volker


Mimimitoceras is the most abundant late Famennian goniatite genus in the Anti-Atlas of Morocco and the Saoura Valley of Algeria. Based on conch morphology, conch ontogeny, suture line and ornament, six new species can be separated, which occur in three successive rock intervals. The new species M. carnatum, M. comtum, M. endocuboide, M. taourirtense, M. alidrisii and M. ibnishaqi are compared with time equivalent Central European species.
