Abstract

A new specimen of the common coleoid Plesioteuthis prisca was discovered in the Nusplingen Lithographic Limestone (Late Jurassic, Late Kimmeridgian, Beckeri Zone, Ulmense Subzone; SW Germany). Although heavily deformed remains of the beaks as well as isolated beaks which had been tentatively assigned to this taxon have already been described, this specimen is the first which allows linking a specific form of upper beak to this coleoid species which was largely based on the gladius. As documented for other coleoids from Nusplingen before, this specimen most likely represents remains of a specimen some predator or scavenger had fed on.
