Vertebrates are a highly significant component of the Jehol Biota of northern Hebei, western Liaoning, and southeastern Inner Mongolia. Furthermore, Jehol vertebrate fossils from these areas are remarkable for their abundance and diversity, and for their taphonomy which has resulted in the preservation of large numbers of complete skeletons and of soft tissues including the feathers of birds and nonavian dinosaurs. In contrast, and also for taphonomic reasons, skeletons are extremely rare in… 

First remains of Lepisosteiformes actinopterygians from the Jurassic of Monte Nerone area (Umbria-Marche Apennine, Italy)

Since the early nineteenth century, the structural high of Mt. Nerone in the Umbria-Marche Sabina Domain (UMS – Central/Northern Apennines, Italy) attracted scholars from all over Europe due to the

Abstract The Middle Jurassic – Early Cretaceous period witnessed the emergence of some major representatives of modern continental vertebrate groups (stem lissamphibians, squamates, therian mammals

ABSTRACT This contribution describes the continental micro- and macrovertebrate fauna of Angeac-Charente (Berriasian, Early Cretaceous). The rich and diversified fauna includes at least 38 different

The first record of albanerpetontid amphibians (Amphibia: Albanerpetontidae) from East Asia

TLDR
High Resolution X-ray Computed Microtomography has revealed previously unrecorded features of albanerpetontid skull morphology in three dimensions, including the presence of a supraoccipital and epipterygoids, neither of which occurs in any known lissamphibian.
