Abstract
    Most of the fossils described by DE VERNEUIL (1850) come from Colle near Sabero, Leon. Other fossils come from various localities, some of them far away from Sabero. It is not clear from which locality the only specimen of Terebratula Orbignyana figured by DE VERNEUIL comes. Transverse serial sections made in one specimen of DE VERNEUIL's original collection from Aleje near Sabero, and in specimens collected by the author at El Millar show dental plates and other features not observed in serial sections published in the literature. Accordingly, anew family, Nucinulidae, and a new genus, Nucinulus, type species N. orbignyanus of probable late Emsian age, are established.
