Lower Cretaceous heteromorph ammonites (Ancyloceratina) from Leše near Prevalje (North Karavanke Mts. NE Slovenia)
AbstractThe paper deals with newly discovered Valanginian-Hauterivian fauna of heteromorphic ammonites (Ancyloceratina) from locality south of the village of Leše above the Meža River valley (North Karavanke Mountains). Fossils were recovered from the pelagic limestone. Among the studied heteromorphic ammonites are Lower Cretacaoeus species Himantoceras trinodosum (Upper Valanginian) and Crioceratites cf. nolani (Hauterivian). Based on the accompanied ammonites (Ammonitina) from the outcrop, we biostratigraficaly confirm the presence of Lower Cretaceous ammonites fauna in the Northern Karavanke Mountains. This is also the first report on heteromorphic ammonites in Slovenia.
