Ontogenesis and stratigraphy of the ostracod Veeniacythereis jezzineensis (Bischoff, 1963)
Abstract. Veeniacythereis jezzineensis (Bischoff, 1963) occurs in Israel throughout the Upper Albian-Cenomanian. It comprises continuously ornamented-variable forms, including A-3 to A molt stages. The ontogenetic lineages reveal a pre-adult sexual-dimorphism. It is suggested that Cythereis maghrebensis Bassoullet & Damotte and Cythereis streblolophata Al-Abdul-Razzaq & Grosdidier are junior synonyms of V. jezzineensis.
