Here we describe a new, previously unrecognized elasmobranch microfossil assemblage consisting of isolated dental material from late Pliensbachian marginal marine, near-shore deposits of Grimmen in north-eastern Germany. The faunal composition indicates close affinities to other European pre-Toarcian elasmobranch-bearing localities, as it is predominantly composed of Hybodontiformes (Hybodus reticulatus?, H. hauffianus?, Lissodus sp.), Synechodontiformes (Palidiplospinax enniskilleni, P…

Evolutionary trends of the conserved neurocranium shape in angel sharks (Squatiniformes, Elasmobranchii)
TLDR
It is suggested that the morphological integration and biogeographic processes are the main drivers of their diversity, which might limit their capacity to display higher disparities since their origin.
The making of calibration sausage exemplified by recalibrating the transcriptomic timetree of jawed vertebrates
TLDR
The present work reevaluate all thirty calibrations in detail, present the current state of knowledge on them with its various uncertainties, rerun the dating analysis, and conclude that calibration dates cannot be taken from published compendia or other secondary or tertiary sources without risking strong distortions to the results.

Hettangian to Pliensbachian neoselachian tooth assemblages from marine deposits in northwest Europe are dominated by palaeospinacids. In the Toarcian, elasmobranch faunas tend to be more diverse and

TLDR
These specimens indicate that the number of dorsal fins and the presence or absence of dorsal fin spines represent important features for identifying palaeospinacids.

TLDR
The records of Leptolepis coryphaenoides, L. normandica and L. jaegeri from Grimmen and Dobbertin represent the northeastern-most occurrences of these species from Europe, suggesting that they inhabited the whole central European epicontinental sea during the early Toarcian.
