Sixty species and subspecies of twenty genera of Lower Turonian ammonites from the Middle East are described and figured. Fagesia lenticularis sp. nov., including three new subspecies (lenticularis, asymmetrica, and elliptica) and Choffaticeras ludae trisellatum subsp. nov. are defined. The genera PseudaspidocerasParamammites, Paravascoceras, Fagesia, Choffaticeras, and Protexanites are revised and redefined. Seven biostratigraphic zones based on the ammonites studied are suggested. Some of these zones are correlatable with the Lower Turonian sequences of North and West Africa and of Western Europe.
