This Fossilium Catalogus volume largely follows the excellent and very complete works about the family Baculitidae of Klinger & Kennedy (1993, 1997 and 2001).
All quoted literature in this part has been consulted by me, with one exception. The reference lists that belong to a species are mainly references of specimens that are depicted. But also included are references that can be important for palaeobiogeographical research. They are compiled from literature. The lists are, of course, subjective and open to improvement. Several species are attributed provisionally to genera, and that with question marks, because further research is needed to clarify the taxonomical status of these species. In 14 cases ‘lectotype requested’ is indicated, and in 3 cases ‘neotype requested’.
