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.
