Temporal range: Bathonian–Callovian
Alcidellus was named as a genus buy Gerd Westermann in 1958. It is now generally seen as a subgenus of Oxycerites, differing from Oxyceratites (O) in having a broader venter with ventrolateral shoulders. The shell of Oxycerites, including O (Alcidellus) is generally smooth, essentially involute with a small umbilicus, highly compressed with flanks converging on a narrow, somewhat sharp venter. Sutures are ammonitic.
