      A new genusBosostrea and its five species are described. Among other oyster species already known from elsewhere but now found occurring in the Bagh Beds,Cameleolopha cameleo (Coq.) is of particular interest bearing on the age of these beds as it comes from the Cenomanian of Algeria, andLopha (Actinostreon) semiplana (Sow.) is of interest as a species widely occurring in the Mediterranean Palaeo-Zoo-Geographic Province.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In the light of the present authors’ work on subfamily Ostreinae from the Cretaceous of India, it was felt desirable that the two informal groups non-incubatory and incubatory genera of Stenzel in this Subfamily, be raised to the status of tribes as Crassostreini and Ostreini respectively on par with tribe Flemingostreini Stenzel. Also two new non-incubatory generaCussetostrea andSoleniscostrea are proposed here based on the type species asCrassostrea cusseta Sohl and Kauffman andCrassostrea soleniscus (Meek) respectively.
