Abstract (in english)
   Diptyxis luettickei (Blanckenhorn), D. munellae n.sp. and D. mirditae n.sp. are described from Barremian to Aptian beds of Albania. Tectonically, they are part of the Mirdita Zone. The genera Favria Cossmann, which has been renamed into Julesia by Cox (1954) for priority reasons, and Cylindroptyxis Pchelintsev are considered as synonyms. They therefore belong to the family Nerineidae, not to the Itieriidae as was proposed by earlier authors. Diptyxis species possess one columellar plait and one parietal plait. This morphologic character also occurs in the Cretacous Campanilidae. Stratigraphically, Diptyxis ranges from the Sequanian to the Upper Cenomanian
