Abstract

The Late Devonian to Early Carboniferous olistolith near Družetić (north-western Serbia) contains the most species rich occurrence of Palaeozoic ammonoids known from the Balkan Peninsula. Four main faunal complexes are recorded, (1) a late Famennian assemblage with few clymeniids, (2) a species-poor indifferent Tournaisian assemblage, (3) two rather diverse early Late Viséan assemblages with about 15 species and (4) two latest Viséan/Serpukhovian assemblages with more than 20 species. The new genus Druzeticia and the following new species are described from the third faunal complex: Beyrichoceras jadarense, Ubites divnae, Ubites novaki, Entogonites serbicus, Druzeticia decens and Prolecanites stevanovici. The latest Viséan/Serpukhovian assemblages show very close relationships with the South Urals and both regions most probably belong to the same palaeogeographical realm.
