Abstract. In 1980, several new species of dinoflagellate cyst taxa were validly published and named from the Kimmeridge Clay of England as part of a larger study on Kimmeridgian-Valanginian dinoflagellate cyst assemblages (Fisher & Riley, 1980); this study was originally presented at the IV International Palynological Conference, Lucknow in 1976–77. This note, necessitated by the long publication delay and numerous printing errors, comprises taxonomic re-allocations, taking account of subsequent studies (Norris, 1978; Stover & Evitt, 1978; Davey, 1979; Riley, 1979) and corrects inadvertent taxonomic errors.
