Metoicoceras geslinianum (d'Orbigny), an Upper Cenomanian indicator in Boreal faunas occurs in the "Kanabiceras" Zone of Israel, associated with Vascoceras cauvini Chudeau, a widely recorded Tethyan index fossil that has generally been regarded as Lower Turonian. This provides the first direct evidence for the Cenomanian age of part of the Lower Turonian in Tethys, as well as the undoubted occurrence of true vascoceratids in the late Cenomanian.
