Multi‐proxy analyses of Late Cretaceous coprolites from Germany

TLDR
The phosphatic composition, frequent bone inclusions, size and morphology collectively suggest that most, if not all, coprolites were produced by carnivorous (predatory or scavenging) vertebrates.

A New Hypothesis of the Phylogenetic Relationships of the Tylosaurinae (Squamata: Mosasauroidea)

TLDR
The hypothesis for a North Atlantic Circle Basin distribution for species of the genus Tylosaurus from the Coniacian to the Maatrichtian is supported, and a more cosmopolitan distribution is suggested for the genus Hainosaurus/Tylosaurus neumilleri with species present along the margins of the Pacific, Indian and Antarctic Ocean Basins.

Reappraisal of Europe’s most complete Early Cretaceous plesiosaurian: Brancasaurus brancai Wegner, 1914 from the “Wealden facies” of Germany

TLDR
A comprehensive examination of the holotype as it is now preserved, and also assessed other Bückeberg Group plesiosaurian fossils to establish a morphological hypodigm, concludes that these monotypic individuals are ontogenetic morphs and G. wegneri is a junior synonym of B. brancai.

The First Freshwater Mosasauroid (Upper Cretaceous, Hungary) and a New Clade of Basal Mosasauroids

TLDR
Pannoniasaurus inexpectatus uniquely possesses a plesiomorphic pelvic anatomy, a non-mosasauroid but pontosaur-like tail osteology, possibly limbs like a terrestrial lizard, and a flattened, crocodile-like skull.
