Leptoceras brunneri, from Wright et al. (1996).

Belongs within: Stephanocerataceae.

The Bochianitidae are an Upper Jurassic to Lower Cretaceous lineage of loosely coiled to straight ammonoids. They may be divided between two subfamilies with the Protancyloceratinae being loosely coiled (rarely helical), strongly ribbed forms. The Bochianitinae have straight shells that bear prorsiradiate annular ribs or are entirely smooth (Wright et al. 1996).
