Two specimens of the ammonite genus Texanites from the Santonian sediments of False Bay, Zululand, have aptychi, identified as Spinaptychus spinosus (Cox), in their body chambers. This association appears to be a valid one, and is compatible with previous records of Spinaptychus from Texanites-beatiag strata in England, North Africa, the Middle East, and North America, although no previous associations have been described.
