The largest flying reptile from Gondwana: a new specimen of Tropeognathus cf. T. mesembrinus Wellnhofer, 1987 (Pterodactyloidea, Anhangueridae) and other large pterosaurs from the Romualdo Formation,
TLDR
The distal end of a larger humerus and a partial wing are described showing that large to giant flying reptiles formed a significant part of the pterosaur fauna from the Romualdo Formation, showing the nomenclatural stability of the Santana deposits are presented.
Description of a new specimen of Susisuchus anatoceps (Crocodylomorpha: Mesoeucrocodylia) from the Crato Formation (Santana Group) with comments on Neosuchia
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of Susisuchus anatoceps based on new characters of MPSC-R1136 in addition to the holotype, and employing a previous data set of Jouve, placed this taxon as a basal member of the advanced neosuchian clade.
CONTROLLED EXCAVATIONS IN THE ROMUALDO FORMATION LAGERSTÄTTE (ARARIPE BASIN, BRAZIL) AND PTEROSAUR DIVERSITY: REMARKS BASED ON NEW FINDINGS
Abstract Because of its fossil abundance and exceptional preservation, the Romualdo Formation of the Santana Group has become a famous lithostratigraphic unit of the Araripe Basin. In the past
A new toothed pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea: Anhangueridae) from the Early Cretaceous Romualdo Formation, NE Brazil.
TLDR
The lateral surface of the premaxillary crest shows grooves and tridimensional structures that may have housed blood vessels in the Anhangueridae from the Araripe Basin described.
Paleohistology of Susisuchus anatoceps (Crocodylomorpha, Neosuchia): Comments on Growth Strategies and Lifestyle
TLDR
The high number of ulnar LAGs and the active remodeling process are indicative that this animal was at least a late subadult, at or past the age of sexual maturity, which contradicts previous studies that interpreted this and other Susisuchus anatoceps specimens as juveniles, and suggests that full-grown adults of this species were relatively small-bodied.
Spectroscopic studies of wood fossils from the Crato Formation, Cretaceous Period.
New data on the stem and leaf anatomy of two conifers from the Lower Cretaceous of the Araripe Basin, northeastern Brazil, and their taxonomic and paleoecological implications
TLDR
New data suggest the presence of more than one Pseudofrenelopsis species in the Aptian taphoflora of the Araripe Basin and further support the taxonomic placement of B. obesum within Araucariaceae.
Taxonomic remarks on Brazilian Cretaceous Decapoda from Araripe Basin, Brazil, and ecological inferences
TLDR
The Dendrobranchiata material of P. deliciosa, found in the bituminous shale of Romualdo Member, is for the first time recorded in clusters of fragmentary parts that suggest mass mortality and morphologies that point to a planktonic lifestyle, as occurs with extant forms of sergestids.
Evidence of plant–insect interaction in the Early Cretaceous Flora from the Crato Formation, Araripe Basin, Northeast Brazil
Abstract The analysis of insect-plant interaction can be provide paleoecological and paleoenvironmental important data for understanding the co-evolution between plants and insects. Since the
