The genus Dorsetensia is revised to include Ammonitespinguis Roemer and related species. Dimorphism is possible but separate specific names for macroconchs and microconchs are retained for the present. In the basal part of the Humphriesianum Zone and Subzone D. hannoverana (Hiltermann) (? M), D. hebridica sp. nov. (? M), and D. pinguis (Roemer) (?m) occur, while stratigraphically higher in the Humphriesianum Subzone are D. liostraca Buckman (? M) and D. romani (Oppel) (? m).
