New Mid-Cretaceous (Latest Albian) Dinosaurs from Winton, Queensland, Australia
The occurrence of Australovenator from the Aptian to latest Albian confirms the presence in Australia of allosauroids basal to the Carcharodontosauridae, and indicates a diverse Early Cretaceous sauropod and theropod fauna in Australia.

The results of a new phylogenetic analysis, in which both Savannasaurus and Diamantinasaurus are recovered within Titanosauria, were used as the basis for a quantitative palaeobiogeographical analysis of macronarian sauropods.

Abstract. Ernietta plateauensis Pflug, 1966 is the type species of the Erniettomorpha, an extinct clade of Ediacaran life. It was likely a gregarious, partially infaunal organism. Despite its…

The newly established dental morphology afforded re-evaluation of isolated theropod teeth discovered at the Australovenator holotype locality and from several additional Winton Formation localities, suggesting megaraptorids were the dominant predators in the Winton formation, which contrasts with other penecontemporaneous Gondwanan ecosystems.
Taphonomy of the Ediacaran Fossil Pteridinium Simplex Preserved Three-Dimensionally in Mass Flow Deposits, Nama Group, Namibia
Abstract Ediacara-type fossils are found in a diverse array of preservational styles, implying that multiple taphonomic mechanisms might have been responsible for their preservational expression. For…
The Winton Formation flora (Albian–Cenomanian, Eromanga Basin): implications for vascular plant diversification and decline in the Australian Cretaceous
The youngest Australian equisetaleans and bennettitaleans are identified within the latest Albian to early Cenomanian Winton Formation flora based on new impression fossils from the Winton district,…
Reassessment of the non‐titanosaurian somphospondylan Wintonotitan wattsi (Dinosauria: Sauropoda: Titanosauriformes) from the mid‐Cretaceous Winton Formation, Queensland, Australia

- 1 February 2015
Following the revision and reinterpretation of a number of elements, the phylogenetic placement of Wintonotitan is re‐examine, supporting its position as a non‐titanosaurian somphospondylan titanosauriform, with no close relationship with the contemporaneous lithostrotian titanosur Diamantinasaurus.
