The Orectolobiformes, Carcharhiniformes and Myliobatiformes (Elasmobranchii, Neoselachii) of phosphate basins of Morocco (Maastrichtian-Early Lutetian. Systematics, biostratigraphy, evolution and faunal dynamics.The phosphate series of Morocco (Early Maastrichtian-Early Ypresian) is well known for its richness in selachian teeth studied by ARAMBOURG in an important monograph in 1952.

Newly collected material is particularly rich in new taxa which justify a reexamination of these faunas. The object of the present account is the revision of two shark orders (Orectolobiformes and Carcharhiniformes) and of one ray order (Myliobatiformes) which appearvery diversified and rich in new taxa. 13 new genera, one new subgenus and 52 new species are described and figured.
