Abstract

A study of the Lower Jurassic nautiloids held in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and the Instituto Geológico y Minero, Spain, and in the Universidade de Coimbra and the Museu Geológico e Mineiro, Portugal, has revealed the presence of numerous and diverse representatives of the genera Cenoceras, Ligeiceras, Ophionautilus, and Digonioceras in the Toarcian of the Iberian Peninsula. Specifically, the taxa Cenoceras robustum, C. fontannesi, C. semistriatum, C. astacoides, C. jourdani, C. toarcense, C. ciryi, C.? beirense, Ligeiceras fourneti, L. inornatum, L. anomphalum, L. jurense, L.? globulum, Ophionautilus sp., Digonioceras sp. 1, and D. sp. 2 have been identified and described, and their stratigraphic distributions have been determined for this region of southwestern Europe.
