Universidade de Lisboa, Faculdade de Ciências, Departamento de Geologia and Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL), Campo Grande, C6, 4º, 1749-016 Lisboa, Portugal

This paper reports the deposition of a collection of type and figured material in the Senckenberg Museum, Frankfurt-am-Main. It has proved necessary to make certain taxonomic revisions that have come to light in recent years concerning the paper by Damotte, Cabral & Berthou (1990) on the Aptian of Portugal. Original names are cited below.
