A new vampyropod coleoid from the Cenomanian limestones of Coahuila (Mexico) is described. Glyphiteuthis rhinophora n. sp. is classified as a member of the Trachyteuthididae because of its general gladius morphology. Within the genus Glyphiteuthis, Gl. rhinophora n. sp. is unique by its nose-shaped extension of the anterior median field extremity. The ventral gladius surface reflects the dorsal surface and lacks evidence of a phragmocone, so affiliations with sepiids are unlikely. Gl… Expand
Diversity, Morphology, and Phylogeny of Coleoid Cephalopods from the Upper Cretaceous Plattenkalks of Lebanon–Part II: Teudopseina
A detailed comparison with Jurassic gladii shows that the Teudopseina is a very homogenous group that can be easily differentiated from other Mesozoic, gladius-bearing groups (Prototeuthidina, Loligosepiina). Expand
Large-sized gladius-bearing octobrachians (coleoid cephalopods) in the Turonian plattenkalk of Vallecillo, Mexico
Abstract The Turonian plattenkalk of Vallecillo (Mexico) yielded two large-sized gladiuses of octobrachian coleoids. The specimens determined as Boreopeltis ifrimae sp. nov. are both classified asExpand
Gladius-bearing coleoids from the Upper Cretaceous Lebanese Lagerstätten: diversity, morphology, and phylogenetic implications
Two transverse rows of sessile suckers are document for the first time and this strongly supports the phylogenetic proximity of D. syriaca with modern vampyropods rather than with modern decabrachians. Expand
Arm hooks and structural features in the Early Permian Glochinomorpha Gordon , indicative of its coleoid affiliation
It is concluded that in the evolutionary history of gladius-bearing coleoids, the biomaterial (biochemical) development of the skeleton preceded its morphological transformation and resulted in a recombination of an advanced composition with archaic features in the gladius of G. stifeli. Expand
New records of coleoid cephalopod jaws from the Upper Cretaceous of Hokkaido, Japan, and their paleobiogeographic and evolutionary implications
Abstract Seven coleoid jaws recovered from Santonian to lower Campanian (Upper Cretaceous) strata in Hokkaido, Japan were taxonomically studied. Based on the comparison with the jaws of modern andExpand
An unusual occurrence of vascoceratid ammonites in the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin (Czech Republic) marks the lower Turonian boundary between the Boreal and Tethyan realms in central Europe
Abstract An unusual early Turonian ammonite fauna, comprising Fagesia peroni (Pervinquiere, 1907), Fagesia catinus (Mantell, 1822) and Paramammites polymorphus (Pervinquiere, 1907), is recorded forExpand
Scombroclupea occidentalis sp. nov. (Clupeiformes, Teleostei) from the Cenomanian (Cretaceous) Plattenkalk deposits of NE Mexico
A new species of the clupeid genus Scombroclupea is described from the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian) Plattenkalk locality “Loma la Mula” in Coahuila, northeastern Mexico. The material provides newExpand
Beak from the body chamber of an Early Carboniferous shelled longiconic coleoid cephalopod from Arkansas, USA
Here we report the discovery of an Early Carboniferous (Late Visean) 3D cephalopod beak displaying significant similarity to the lower beak of Recent coleoids. It was uncovered in a fragmentarilyExpand
The Upper Campanian - lower Maastrichtian cephalopod fauna of Botellos, Nuevo León: a key to understand faunal turnover across the Campanian-Maastrichtian boundary in NE Mexico
A new cephalopod collection from the Campanian-Maastrichtian boundary interval of NE Mexico, consisting of 1076 individuals assigned to 29 species and 22 genera is presented. This collection is a mixExpand


Gladius shape variation in coleoid cephalopod Trachyteuthis from the Upper Jurassic Nusplingen and Solnhofen Plattenkalks
Morphometric analyses have shown that length−width indices are ambiguous characters to differentiate between the three species of Trachyteuthis hastiformis, which can be linked with the Early Jurassic genus Teudopsis and the Late Cretaceous genus Glyphiteuthis. Expand
Trachyteuthis covacevichi n. sp., a Late Jurassic Palaeopacific coleoid cephalopod
Abstract. A new early Oxfordian coleoid cephalopod, Trachyteuthis covacevichi n. sp., is described from northern Chile. It represents the first Late Jurassic Palaeopacific vampyropod and thusExpand

A new Cenomanian (Late Cretaceous) coleoid (Cephalopoda) from Hâdjoula, Lebanon
Abstract. A new vampyropod coleoid from the late Cenomanian limestones of Hâdjoula (north-west Lebanon) is described. Glyphiteuthis abisaadiorum n. sp. is classified as a representative of theExpand
Early Turonian ammonites from Vallecillo, north-eastern Mexico: taxonomy, biostratigraphy and palaeobiogeographical significance
Abstract The ‘Plattenkalk’ of Vallecillo, approximately 100 km north of Monterrey in north-eastern Mexico, has yielded an ammonite assemblage of both North American (Western Interior) and TethyanExpand
Coleoid beaks from the Nusplingen Lithographic Limestone (Upper Kimmeridgian, SW Germany)
Over twenty specimens of coleoid beaks were recovered from the Nusplingen Lithographic Limestone and suggest a close phylogenetic relation to the Octopoda, as the lower beak of Vampyroteuthis has a different morphology. Expand
