Ammonite content inside this level is a condensed association including several reelaborated, topologically-successive ammonite associations, which characterize successively the Collotiformis, Poculum, lower Bukowskii (= Claromontanus: Melendez et al.

However, the large poculum of males, which is noticeably larger than the basal portion of sternum IX, the conspicuous shape of the subgenital plate of females as well as the basal position of the stigmata of abdominal tergum VIII in both sexes distinguish Litosermyle from all other genera of Eusermyleformia (Conle, Hennemann & Gutierrez 2011).
Poculum of male bulgy, roundly convex and cup-like in basal portion; posterior margin either not reaching to apex of anal segment and with two terminal teeth (Jeremiodes and Jeremia) or with a long tube-like or spatulate posterior appendage which greatly extends over the apex of the abdomen (Cladomorphus and Otocraniella).
