Abstract The ursid fossils collected from Saint Jacques include Pachycynodon tedfordi, new species, Amphicynodon sp., and Cephalogale sp. The distinctive features of Pachycynodon tedfordi are: short premolar series relative to molars, diastemata between c and p1 and among premolars very short or absent, distinct cingula on p1–p4, well-developed posterior accessory cuspids on p2–p4, long and narrow m1 with relatively high protoconid, metaconid lower than paraconid, and relatively long m2 without… 

Chondrichthyan spines from the Famennian (Upper Devonian) of Russia

Very rare chondrichthyan spines from the Famennian (Upper Devonian) of European Russia are referred here to ctenacanthiforms, euselachians and a chondrichthyan group of uncertain systematic position.

Possible metazoan egg fossils from the Darriwilian (Middle Ordovician) of Baltoscandia

The Baltoscandian lower Palaeozoic succession is well known for the abundance, diversity and excellent preservation of various groups of microfossils, such as acritarchs, chitinozoans, scolecodonts

Two new feather mites of the subfamily Proctophyllodinae (Acariformes: Proctophyllodidae) from the Yellow-bellied Flycatcher Empidonax flaviventris (Passeriformes: Tyrannidae) in Canada

Two new feather mite species are described from the Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Empidonax flaviventris (Passeriformes: Tyrannidae), in Canada, which is the first record of the genus Tyranniphyllodes in North America.

Sonitictis moralesi, gen. et sp. nov, a new hypercarnivorous and durophagous mustelid from middle Miocene Tunggur Formation, Inner Mongolia, China and its functional morphology

ABSTRACT We name a rare, hypercarnivorous and durophagous mustelid Sonitictis moralesi, new genus and species, in honour of Jorge Morales for his contributions to carnivore palaeontology. Sonitictis

Ursidae (Mammalia, Carnivora) from the Late Oligocene of the “Phosphorites du Quercy” (France) and a reappraisal of the genus Cephalogale Geoffroy, 1862

This work reports on karstic fissure fillings from the Quercy (France) which give an exceptional open laboratory for the study of evolution of vertebrates and especially mammals from the Eocene to the Early Miocene, and yields the best sample ever found of a hemicyonine ursid.

Fossil amphibians and reptiles from the Neogene locality of Maramena (Greece), the most diverse European herpetofauna at the Miocene/Pliocene transition boundary

The large number of distinct amphibian and reptile taxa in Maramena makes this Greek locality by far the most diverse and speciose among all European localities across the latest Miocene and earliest Pliocene.

Fossil lagomorphs from the Potwar Plateau, northern Pakistan

Siwalik Group sediments on the Potwar Plateau have yielded approximately 20 cranial and postcranial remains of leporids from nine localities. The oldest dental remains (late Miocene, 7.4-6.5 Ma) are

A new slider turtle (Testudines: Emydidae: Deirochelyinae: Trachemys) from the late Hemphillian (late Miocene/early Pliocene) of eastern Tennessee and the evolution of the deirochelyines

The new taxon, Trachemys haugrudi, is described, and currently represents the most thoroughly described fossil emydid species known, and a phylogenetic analysis is performed that includes the new fossil species, along with numerous other modern and fossil deirochelyine species, representing the first phylogenetics analysis published that includes several fossil deIROchelyines.

A new carnivoran fauna from the late Oligocene of Hungary

A new carnivoran fauna composed of rare dental and long bone remains of basal arctoid carnivores from upper Oligocene lagoon deposits of Hungary are described. Despite the small sample size, four

Phylogeny of Oweniidae (Polychaeta) based on morphological data and taxonomic revision of Australian fauna

Phylogenetic hypotheses confirmed the monophyly of Oweniidae and suggested sister-group relationships with Magelonidae, although weakly supported and recognised Myrioglobula as a junior synonym of Myriochele based on the presence of acicular chaetae and the shape of the head.



Neogene Zapodidae (Mammalia; Rodentia) from South Dakota

The appearance of Plesiosminthus in the Monroe Creek indicates that renewed faunal interchange between Europe and North America began during the middle Arikareean.

Eomyidae (Rodentia: Mammalia) from the Oligocene of Nei Mongol, China

Four forms of eomyid rodents are now recognized in the Oligocene of Nei Mongol, China, and these occurrences support the hypothesis of exchange between the European and North American eomyids via Asia.

On some Oligocene carnivorous mammals from Central Asia

Among the Oligocene mammal-bearing deposits of Central Asia, two are very famous: Ergilin Dzo and Shand Gol Svitas in which terrestrial predaceous mammals are represented by Creodonta and Carnivora.

New Carnivora from the Tertiary of Mongolia

Paracynohysnodon morrisi, new species TYPE.-No. 19160, lower jaw, immature, with ml unworn, ps and m8 preformed, Irdin Manha beds. Found by F. K. Morris, 23 miles south of Iren Dabasu.

Classification of mammals : above the species level

Malcolm C. McKenna and Susan K. McKenna inherited the project from Simpson and, with Bell, has constructed a completely updated hierarchical system that reflects the genealogy of Mammalia.
