Abstract: The outcrop at Milivojevica Kamenjar in Druzetic (Jadar Block, Vardar Zone, NW Serbia), which exposes a fossiliferous limestone olistolith, is one of the key sites for Carboniferous stratigraphy and paleogeography in the Balkan Peninsula. Its age has been debated several times, and re-examination of the succession was required. Based on ammonoids and conodonts, an interval spanning from the latest Devonian to the basal Serpukhovian is represented. From the early late Visean portion of the section, the new ammonoid genus and species Ubites filipovici gen. nov. et sp. nov. is described. Entogonites tetragonus (Kullmann, 1962), a formerly misinterpreted ammonoid species, is revised.
