Neohibolites ewaldi (v. Strombeck, 1861) and Peratobelus foersteri sp. nov. are described from the Upper Aptian sediments of the Rio Maputo river, near Catuane, southern Mozambique. Peratobelus has a wider distribution than was first thought, occurring on both Tethyan (Mozambique) and Pacific (Antarctica, Australia) coasts of Gondwana. The presence of Neohibolites in Mozambique strengthens the hypothesis of a widespread migration of this genus in the Aptian-Albian.
