Ostracod associations coming from the Upper Triassic (Tropites subbullatus/Anatropites spinosus zones of the Tuvalian substage) clays and sandstones of the Mufara Formation outcropping along the west side of Monte Gambanera (Castel di Iudica, central-eastern Sicily) have been analysed for the first time.

The species name refers to Sicily where the locus typicus is located. In the same way, the carapaces of Acratiidae lengthen with depth (as example: Acratia goemeryiKozur (1970) from Early-Smithian- to Late-Carnian-Triassic; see Forel et al., 2017). Material. The only useful palaeoecologic data are those obtained from the palaeontological analysis. H: Polycope sp. Tropites, genus of extinct cephalopods (animals similar to the modern squid and octopus but with an external shell) found as fossils in marine rocks of the Late Triassic Period (from 230 to 208 million years ago). Through time, the assemblage became more diversified as recorded by the increasing number of families (8 to 12), genera (14 to 18) and species (23 to 36). (2018). E-mail: dieter.korn@mfn-berlin.de.
