Knyazev V.G., Kutygin R.V., Meledina S.V. (2010) New Ammonite Zonation of the Lower Callovian in North Siberia // Stratigraphy and Geological Correlation, Vol. 18, No. 4, pp. 392–410.
Abstract: The lower Callovian succession observable in cliffs of Anabar Bay and Bolshoi Begichev Island is described with consideration of zonal subdivisions and beds with ammonites. The unified summary biozonation suggested for North Siberia includes the Cadoceras elatmae Zone with C. frearsi and C. elatmae (instead former C. anabarense) subzones, subsequent C. tschernyschewi and C. tolype zones, and successive C. cf. sublaeve, Rondiceras milaschevici, and Cadoceras ex gr. durum (formerly part of the middle Callovian) beds. As in Siberia and East Europe there are species in common C. elatmae (Nik.), C. frearsi (Orb.), C. tolype Buck., and C. emelianzevi Vor.; certain ammonite zones of Siberian succession are directly correlated with the East European, East Greenland and standard zonations. It is concluded that the lower Callovian is completely represented in Siberia. The lower part of the interval, formerly attributed to the middle Callovian, represents the upper part of the lower Callovian Substage. Zones established in the lower Callovian succession of Siberia are contiguous, whereas equivalents of the Elatmae Subzone and Tschernyschewi Zone have not been distinguished in sections of East Greenland. Evolutionary trends of species in subfamily Cadoceratinae are preliminary discussed.
Ammonites of the genus Cadoceras discussed in the current article were matter of controversies related mainly with their possible attribution to the species known from the European Russia (C. frearsi, C. elatmae, C. tschernyshevi). In opinion of D. Kiselev and D. Gulyaev, supported by data on statistical approach siberian ammonites perhaps belongs to other cadoceratin lineage that those from European Russia
