Reinterpretation and new denominationof Atacisaurus crassiproratus (Middle Eocene; Issel, France) as cf. Iberosuchus (Crocodylomorpha, Metasuchia)
Abstract The holotype of Atacisaurus crassiproratus Astre , 1931 (Middle Eocene; Issel, France) is herein reinterpreted and attributed to cf. Iberosuchus. The holotype of A. crassiproratus consistsExpand
A REVISION OF THE CROCODYLIFORMALLODAPOSUCHUS PRECEDENS FROM THE UPPER CRETACEOUS OF THE HATEG BASIN, ROMANIA. ITS RELEVANCE IN THE PHYLOGENY OF EUSUCHIA
TLDR
Allodaposuchus is an outstanding crocodyliform providing new anatomical evidence concerning the stem-group of Crocodylia, and filling the gap between the Early Cretaceous (Barremian) Hylaeochampsa and the earliest common ancestor of CroCodylia. Expand
The Braincase of the Basal Sauropod Dinosaur Spinophorosaurus and 3D Reconstructions of the Cranial Endocast and Inner Ear
TLDR
In contrast to what might be expected early within a lineage leading to plant-eating graviportal quadrupeds, Spinophorosaurus and other (but not all) sauropodomorphs show no reduction of the vestibular apparatus of the inner ear. Expand
A New Basal Sauropod Dinosaur from the Middle Jurassic of Niger and the Early Evolution of Sauropoda
TLDR
The anatomy of Spinophorosaurus indicates that key innovations in Jurassic sauropod evolution might have taken place in North Africa, an area close to the equator with summer-wet climate at that time and Jurassic climatic zones and phytogeography possibly controlled early saurood diversification. Expand
A unique multitoothed ornithomimosaur dinosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of Spain
THE Lower Cretaceous lithographic limestones from Las Hoyas (province of Cuenca, Spain) have yielded important vertebrate fossil remains. We report here a new specimen, the first ornithomimosaurExpand
An Early Cretaceous bird from Spain and its implications for the evolution of avian flight
TLDR
A new, exquisitely preserved, bird from the Lower Cretaceous Konservat-Lagerstätte of Las Hoyas (Cuenca, Spain) which provides evidence for the oldest known alula (bastard wing) and the recognition of a new enantiornithine taxon, Eoalulavishoyasi. Expand
New crocodiles (Eusuchia: Alligatoroidea) from the Upper Cretaceous of southern Europe
The Upper Cretaceous sites of Lano and Quintanilla del Coco in northern Spain have yielded significant crocodilian remains, allowing a more precise interpretation of the fragmentary record ofExpand
A bizarre, humped Carcharodontosauria (Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of Spain
TLDR
An almost complete and exquisitely preserved skeleton of a medium-sized theropod from the Lower Cretaceous series (Barremian stage) Konservat-Lagerstätte of Las Hoyas in Cuenca, Spain is described and it is proposed that Concavenator has integumentary follicular structures inserted on the ulna, as in modern birds. Expand
A New Dryosaurid Ornithopod (Dinosauria, Ornithischia) from the Late Jurassic of Portugal
TLDR
The complete pes of Eousdryosaurus, which has a phalangeal formula of 1-3-4-5-0, supports the putative autapomorphic reduction of the dryosaurid pes that also occurs in parallel in more derived ornithopods. Expand
Biotic association and palaeoenvironmental reconstruction of the “Loma del Pterodaustro” fossil site (Early Cretaceous, Argentina)
Abstract A sedimentological analysis of the basal section of the Early Cretaceous, lacustrine LagarcitoFormation at “Loma del Pterodaustro” (San Luis, Argentina) and a summary of its biologicalExpand
