Species Phylloceras (Neophylloceras)surya Forbes 1846

Diagnosis / Definition:
FATMI & Kennedy (1999):
Description. -Two phragmocones GSPI035-1036, 95.4 and 97.9 mm in diameter show very involute coiling: umbilicus 6 percent of diameter (Table 1); whorl section compressed oval with whorl breadth to height ratio 0.48-0.61; greatest breadth below mid-flank. Flanks feebly convex; venter broadly rounded. Fifteen widely separated low, narrow ribs arise at umbilical shoulder. Feebly convex and prorsiradiate on inner flanks, straight and effacing on outer flanks, splitting into delicate wiry lirae. Additional lirae arise on inner to middle flank, strengthen on outer flanks and venter that bear even regular ornament of crowded lirae. Suture deeply incised and finely divided; lobes and saddles with narrow axial zones. Types.-The lectotype, by the subsequent designation of Kennedy and Henderson, 1992a, p. 391, is BMNH C51074, the original of Kossmat, 1895, pl. 15(2), fig. 1; paralectotypes are BMNH C51076-51079, from the Upper Maastrichtian Valudavur Formation of Pondicherry, south India. Other material examined.-GSP 1035-1036.
Discussion / Comments:
FATMI & Kennedy (1999):
Discussion.-The present specimens partially overlap in size with the lectotype, from which they differ in no significant details. See Henderson and McNamara (1985, p. 42, pl. 1, figs. 7, 8, 11, 12; pl. 2, figs. 1, 2; text-fig. 2g).
