The geology of Hornby Island Hoen, Ernst Leon Wilhelm Balthazar


The thesis represents a stratigraphical, structural and paleontological study of the Upper Cretaceous strata exposed on Hornby Island. The stratigraphy and structure were studied in some detail, but the main part of the work is the faunal description, revision and illustration of 24 species of cephalopods, 15 species of pelecypods, 9 species of gastropods, 1 coral and 2 scaphopods. The group of nostoceratids previously assigned to Anisoceras cooperi has been divided into five species, of which two are new ones.
