New fossil collections provide additional information about the late Campanian and Maastrichtian ammonites from the Navesink Formation of New Jersey. Late Campanian ammonites include Pseudophyllites indra (Forbes, 1846), Nostoceras (N.) approximans (Conrad, 1855) (of which Nostoceras (N.) stantoniHyatt, 1894, is a synonym), Nostoceras (N.) hyattiStephenson, 1941, Nostoceras (N.) pauper (Whitfield, 1892), Didymoceras cf. D. draconis (Stephenson, 1941), Exiteloceras rude n. sp., Hoploscaphites pumilus (Stephenson, 1941), and Jeletzkytes cf. J. nodosus (Owen, 1852). Maastrichtian ammonites from the Navesink Formation include Pachydiscus (P.) neubergicus neubergicus (Hauer, 1858), Kitchinites sp., Nostoceras (N.) alternatum (Tuomey, 1854), Baculites sp., Eubaculites cf. E. labyrinthicus (Morton, 1834), Eubaculites sp.?, Jeletzkytes cf. J. plenus (Meek, 1876), Jeletzkytes criptonodosusRiccardi, 1983, and Discoscaphites gulosus (Morton, 1834).
These faunas are correlated with those of Western Europe, the Gulf Coast, and the Western Interior of the United States. The older fauna from the basal phosphatic beds of the Navesink Formation at the classic Atlantic Highlands locality is referred to the Nostoceras (N.) hyatti zone. It is late Campanian in age and equivalent to the Nostoceras (N.) pozaryskii/Belemnella langei zone in Europe and the Baculites jenseni zone in the United States Western Interior. In
