Ammonites of the subfamily Acanthoceratinae occur in abundance at a single locality in KwaZulu, the eastern part of the Skoenberg, on the lower reaches of the Mzinene River, north-northeast of Hluhluwe. This is the classic locality from which William Anderson collected the material described by G.C. Crick in 1907 as being from the 'deposit at the north end of False Bay.' The fossils occur weathered out on the surface; there is no section. The ammonites described below are predominantly Middle Cenomanian, with indications of the presence of lower Upper Cenomanian on the basis of records elsewhere. The following species are described: Crick, 1907 (of which Crick, 1907, Crick, 1907, Crick, 1907, Crick, 1907, Crick, 1907, Crick, J. de C. Sowerby, and Crick, 1907, are synonyms), Crick, 1907, (Venzo, 1936), ? sp. a and sp. b, (Brongniart, 1822) (of which Crick, 1907 is a synonym), (Jimbo, 1894), (Kossmat, 1897), ) cf. (Kossmat, 1897), (Kossmat, 1897), (Crick, 1907), (Collignon, 1937) and (Stoliczka, 1864).
