Abstract

Nature (Příroda) is an aggregate of more or less separate permanent natural science exhibitions. These are focused on mineralogy, meteorites and tektites, famous ore deposits and mines of the Czech Republic, prehistorical development of Czech territory, mycology and botany. The majority of “Nature” is devoted to geosciences, whereas contemporary nature of the Czech Republic will be presented in a series of multidisciplinary temporary exhibitions focused on individual phenomena of (not only) Czech nature and on the interrelations of man and nature. The mineralogical exhibition will be installed in its original location and historical furniture being a reminder of the original exhibits that have been preserved intact since the end of the 19th century.

Abstract

Only two specimens of the ammonite genus Schloenbachia have hitherto been recorded from the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin (BCB). While the first specimen was originally described by Dr. J. Soukup in the 1970s, the other one was discovered in an older collection of the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague in 2018. Recently, both specimens were systematically investigated and interpreted as Schloenbachia lymensis, a new ammonite species for the BCB. The stratigraphic distribution of S. lymensis as well as the palaeobiogeography of this taxon are discussed in this paper.
