Oldest record of freshwater sponges (Porifera: Spongillina) — spiculite finds in the Permo-Carboniferous of Europe
Up to now the oldest freshwater siliceous sponges are known from Jurassic deposits of Europe and North America. In this paper stratigraphically older Permo-Carboniferous freshwater siliceous spongesExpand
Fossil-Lagerstätte Enspel–a short review of current knowledge, the fossil association, and a bibliography
Almost two decades ago, the Generaldirektion Kulturelles Erbe Rheinland-Pfalz initiated annual field campaigns in order to investigate geological and palaeobiological aspects of theExpand
The salamandrid Chelotriton paradoxus from Enspel and Randeck Maars (Oligocene–Miocene, Germany)
TLDR
It is suggested that C. paradoxus probably led a predominantly aquatic life, and its trunk ribs bear extensive spikes (epipleural processes), with an elongated one on the 3rd rib. Expand
Fossil insects from the Late Oligocene Enspel Lagerstätte and their palaeobiogeographic and palaeoclimatic significance
TLDR
An overview of the insect taphocoenosis from the upper Oligocene Enspel Lagerstätte (Germany) is given and taphonomic similarities with other localities are discussed. Expand
A NEW SEA SPIDER (ARTHROPODA: PYCNOGONIDA) WITH A FLAGELLIFORM TELSON FROM THE LOWER DEVONIAN HUNSRÜCK SLATE, GERMANY
TLDR
This work describes a new Lower Devonian sea spider from the Hunsruck Slate, Germany, described as Flagellopantopus blocki gen. et sp. Expand
A Loon Leg (Aves, Gaviidae) with Crocodilian Tooth from the Late Oligocene of Germany
TLDR
The Enspel specimen and other Paleogene fossils of gaviiform birds raise the, as yet, unanswered question of why loons largely disappeared from inland habitats of the warmer regions. Expand
On the Emsian (Lower Devonian) arthropods of the Rhenish Slate Mountains: 5. Rare and poorly known eurypterids from Willwerath, Germany
In addition to the previously known eurypterid taxa from Willwerath, remains ofParahughmilleria hefteri, Erieopterus sp., andJaekelopterus rhenaniae are described and figured. Body parts of smallExpand
First finding of fish in the diet of a water-dwelling extinct frog Palaeobatrachus from the Upper Oligocene Fossil-Lagerstätte Enspel (Westerwald Mountains, Western Germany)
Lake Enspel was a deep lake which developed in a small trachytic caldera or a bims volcano. One of two finds of aquatic palaeobatrachid specimens from Enspel contains a fish prey as stomach content,Expand
