  journal={Acta Palaeontologica Polonica},
The marine Pliocene at the locality of Nefiach (Roussillon Basin, SE France) includes several shell beds constituted by oysters and scallops that bear a diverse and abundant bioerosion trace fossil assemblage. The most abundant trace fossils are Gnathichnus pentax and Radulichnus inopinatus, produced by the grazing activity of echinoids and polyplacophorans upon algae and other microorganisms coating shell surfaces. Other bioerosion traces include polychaete dwellings (Caulostrepsis taeniola… 
Bioerosion and encrustation rates in recent mollusk death assemblages on a supratidal siliciclastic setting, Playa Norte, Veracruz State, Mexico
This study presents both qualitative and quantitative data regarding marine mollusk (gastropods and bivalves) shell bioerosion and encrustation based on death assemblages obtained from a recent
Fossichnus solus and Oichnus simplex, two peculiar ichnospecies in modern benthic foraminifera from a polluted area in SW coast of Sardina, Italy
The modern benthic foraminiferal tests collected from a coastal area of south-western Sardinia (PortoscusoPortovesme) that is heavily polluted by industrial activity reveal intense and widespread
Grazing activity as taphonomic record of necrobiotic interaction: A case study of a sea turtle carapace from the Upper Jurassic of the Prebetic (south Spain)
Bioerosion trace fossils can shed light on the ecological interactions between species. Here we describe an unusual case of bioerosion on a turtle carapace of Hispaniachelys prebetica from the
Parasitic gastropod bioerosion trace fossil on Cenomanian oysters from Le Mans, France and its ichnologic and taphonomic context.
We describe and name Loxolenichnus stellatocinctus Breton and Wisshak igen. et isp. nov., a bioerosion trace fossil on an Upper Cenomanian oyster from Le Mans (France). This trace is attributed here
Endolithic biota of belemnites from the Early Cretaceous Speeton Clay Formation of North Yorkshire, UK
Summary The Berriasian–Albian Speeton Clay Formation is renowned for its rich and diverse belemnite fauna. Borings occur in a considerable proportion of the belemnite guards that can be found in the
Molluskan Grazing Traces (Ichnogenus Radulichnus Voigt, 1977) on a Pleistocene Bivalve from Southern Brazil, With the Proposal of a New Ichnospecies
Abstract The ichnogenus Radulichnus Voigt, 1977 is recorded for the first time from a bivalve, Anomalocardia brasiliana (Gmelin, 1791), in a late Pleistocene molluskan assemblage from the southern


Macroborings (Gastrochaenolites) in Lower Ordovician Hardgrounds of Utah: Sedimentologic, Paleoecologic, and Evolutionary Implications
Abstract New evidence of fossil macroborings in the Lower Ordovician (Ibexian) of western Utah demonstrates that the macroboring behavioral strategy was firmly established in the earliest stages of
Ichnological features of a marine transgression: Middle Miocene Rocky Shores of Tarragona, Spain
Bioerosion traces from six rocky shore localities in the Miocene Tarragona basin are described. The bioerosion affects Jurassic and Miocene carbonate substrates. The ichnotaxa include borings
The Oyster Crassostrea? hatcheri (Ortmann, 1897), a Physical Ecosystem Engineer from the Upper Oligocene – Lower Miocene of Patagonia, Southern Argentina
The recorded diversity is comparable to that observed in Recent oyster reefs, suggesting that C.
Bioerosive Structures of sclerozoan foraminifera from the Lower Pliocene of Southern Spain: a contribution to the palaeoecology of marine hard substrate communities
A palaeoecological study of sclerozoan foraminifera of the families Saccamminidae and Cibicididae that colonized epifaunal bivalves during the early Pliocene in southern Spain has led to the recognition of two new boring ichnogenera.
Shallow-water Desmophyllum dianthus (Scleractinia) from Chile: characteristics of the biocoenoses, the bioeroding community, heterotrophic interactions and (paleo)-bathymetric implications
The study of the bioeroding assemblage from two living D. dianthus collected at 28 m water depth in the Renihue Fjord, Chile, shows some remarkable patterns that shed light on the complex way in which the coral’s soft tissue expands and retracts at the apical zone of the corallum in response to in vivo infestation of endolithic algae.
Ichnofabrics containing Ophiomorpha: significance in shallow-water facies interpretation
In an attempt to interpret Ophiomorpha ichnofabrics observed in core, three ichnofabrics are described from outcrops where O. nodosa is a conspicuous element. These ichnofabrics enable sandy
Endolithic community replacement on a Pliocene rocky coast
A limestone karst topography on the island of Rhodes, Greece, was flooded by a tectonically dominated transgression starting in late Pliocene time. Surfaces in contact with seawater were sculptured
Skeletal response of Lophelia pertusa (Scleractinia) to bioeroding sponge infestation visualised with micro-computed tomography
The inferred correlation between corallite morphology and boring sponge infestation has been detected in micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) images and confirmed in sponge trace casts and peculiar features of coral skeleton microstructure.
A Cretaceous woodground; the Teredolites ichnofacies
An occurrence of the trace fossil Teredolites clavatus crowded within the top surface of a coal layer is described and illustrated. The coal, of Late Cretaceous (early Maestrichtian) age, underlies a
