Species Zelandites sp.



Discussion / Comments:
Ward & Kennedy (1993):
Discussion. - Specimens are up to 26 mm diameter. Coiling is very involute, with the umbilicus comprising less than 20 percent of the diameter. The shell is smooth, although there may be traces of constrictions close to the umbilical shoulder. Occurrence. - In the Biscay sections, specimens of this taxon are common in Member III (upper Maastrichtian), while another specimen probably referrable to this taxon has been collected from the last meter of Member V (upper Maastrichtian) at Zumaya
