Abstract

A new genus, Anomalosaepia, and four new species, A. alleni, A. mariettani, A. vernei, and A. andreanae (Sepiida: Belosaepidae) from the Castle Hayne Limestone of southeastern North Carolina are described. Belosaepia jeletzkyi from the Cook Mountain Formation of Louisiana is assigned to Anomalosaepia. All new and referred species differ from Belosaepia in having strongly laterally curved ventral plates, guard-like sheaths without external rugosities, and spine tips with a slit-like aperture.
