Species Pachydiscus (Pachydiscus) Kennedy 1986



Diagnosis / Definition:
Kennedy (1986):
Material. The original ofSeunes (1890a, pI. 3 (2), fig. 4), from Fresville; EMP unregistered. Discussion. This slowly expanding juvenile P. (Pachydiscus) with depressed whorl section and numerous low, narrow, alternately long and short ribs differs from all other specimens from the Calcaire a Baculites. Seunes referred it to Ammonites colligatus without hesitation, comparing it to Binkhorst's (1861) pis. 7 and 8a; Binkhorst's figures show several species of pachydiscid, and the present specimen is certainly not conspecific with those mentioned by Seunes. It is left in open nomenclature at this time.
