Siversson, M. & Machalski, M., February 2017. Late late Albian (Early Cretaceous) shark teeth from Annopol, Poland. Alcheringa 41, 433–463. Screen washing of the condensed phosporite-bearing sands at the top of the Albian succession at Annopol, Poland, produced 789 selachian teeth of which 264 are determinable to at least genus level. The sediment type and methods of processing prevented recovery of small-toothed taxa, resulting in an assemblage comprising 13, mostly large-toothed taxa… Expand
Isolated pliosaurid teeth from the Albian-Cenomanian (Cretaceous) of Annopol, Poland
Brachauchenine pliosaurids were a cosmopolitan clade of macropredatory plesiosaurs that are considered to represent the only pliosaurid lineage that survived the faunal turnover of marine amniotesExpand
Elasmobranch (Chondrichthyes) assemblages from the Albian (Lower Cretaceous) of Ukraine
Abstract Sampling of six horizons of quartz-glauconite sands in Kaniv dislocations in Ukraine yielded more than three thousand vertebrate specimens, including elasmobranch teeth, chimaera dentalExpand
A new partial skeleton of a palaeospinacid shark (Neoselachii, Synechodontiformes) from the Albian of northern France, with a review of the taxonomic history of Early Cretaceous species of Synechodus Woodward, 1888
An articulated skeleton of a palaeospinacid shark from the Saint-Pô Formation of the Boulonnais is described and illustrated for the first time, inclusive of tooth vascularisation and histology, to rule out the possibility of more than one species of Synechodus in the Albian of the Anglo-Paris Basin.

A New Large Late Cretaceous Lamniform Shark from North America, with Comments on the Taxonomy, Paleoecology, and Evolution of the Genus Cretodus
ABSTRACT We describe a partial skeleton of the Late Cretaceous shark, Cretodus, collected from the Blue Hill Shale (middle Turonian) in north-central Kansas, U.S.A. It consists of 134 disarticulatedExpand
Paleoenvironmental context and significance of a partial elasmosaurid skeleton from the Albian of Haute-Provence, France
The Early-Late Cretaceous transition (late Albian-early Cenomanian; ~100 Ma) witnessed marked environmental changes and a deep reorganization of the marine fauna. The impact of these environmentalExpand

First description of sharks’ teeth from the Ferruginous Sands Formation (Aptian, Early Cretaceous) of the Isle of Wight
Abstract A small sample of selachian teeth is described from a glauconitic nodule from the Ladder Chine Member, Ferruginous Sands Formation, Lower Greensand Group, late Aptian, Early Cretaceous foundExpand
Fossil fishes from a lag deposit within the Upper Cretaceous Mancos Shale in New Mexico, USA, with comments on correlative Turonian–Coniacian time-transgressive lags in the Western Interior Seaway of North America
Abstract A lag deposit between the Tocito Sandstone and Mulatto Tongue of the Upper Cretaceous Mancos Shale in Sandoval County, New Mexico, USA, contains a fossil assemblage of late Turonian–earlyExpand
Reassessment of a large lamniform shark from the Upper Cretaceous (Santonian) of Italy
To date, only a few partially articulated chondrichthyan specimens are known from the Upper Cretaceous marine fossil record of northern Italy. Here, we re-evaluate the taxonomic status and geologicExpand


A new Early Cretaceous lamniform shark (Chondrichthyes, Neoselachii)
It is hypothesized that most pre-Aptian lamniforms belong to an ancient group characterized, amongst others, by a very weak gradient monognathic heterodont dental pattern, and by tearing-type dentition. Expand

A previously unrecorded ammonite assemblage, comprising Lepthoplites sp., Callihoplites tetragonus (Seeley, 1865),  C . cf. tetragonus , Arrhaphoceras cf. substuderi Spath, 1923, Cantabrigites sp.,Expand
Late cretaceous sharks Cretoxyrhina and Cardabiodon from Montana, USA
The middle part of the Cretaceous represents a time of high diversity and rapid rates of dental evolution in lamniform sharks. Several species had a very wide spatial distribution with recordedExpand

Re-evaluation of squaloid shark records from the Albian and Cenomanian of Lithuania
Abstract In 1935, Dalinkevicius described and illustrated several teeth of squaloid sharks from Lithuania, originating from deposits considered by him to be of Cenomanian and Turonian age. To date,Expand
A comparison of isolated teeth of early Eocene Striatolamia macrota (Chondrichthyes, Lamniformes), with those of a Recent sand shark, Carcharias taurus.
