Neoselachians from the Danian (Early Paleocene) of Denmark

  title={Neoselachians from the Danian (Early Paleocene) of Denmark},
  author={Jan Schulz Adolfssen and David J Ward},
A diverse elasmobranch fauna was collected from the early Danian Rødvig Formation and the early to middle Danian Stevns Klint Formation at Stevns Klint and from the middle Danian Faxe Formation at Faxe, Denmark. Teeth from 27 species of sharks are described including the earliest records of Chlamydoselachus and Heptranchias howelli from Europe. The fauna collected at the Faxe quarry is rich in large species of shark including Sphenodus lundgreni and Cretalamna appendiculata and includes no…

Early Campanian (Late Cretaceous) squatiniform and synechodontiform selachians from the Åsen locality, Kristianstad Basin, Sweden

Abstract The latest early Campanian archipelago deposits of the Kristianstad Basin, southern Sweden, yield one of the most diverse Cretaceous chondrichthyan faunas collected from a narrow

A new species of Hypolophites (Chondrichthyes, Myliobatiformes) from the Lower Clayton Limestone Unit of the Midway Group (Paleocene), near Malvern, Arkansas, USA

Abstract. A new species of Hypolophites (Chondrichthyes, Myliobatiformes) is described from an assemblage of isolated pavement teeth recovered from the Lower Clayton Limestone Unit of the Midway

Eocene squalomorph sharks (Chondrichthyes, Elasmobranchii) from Antarctica.

Late late Albian (Early Cretaceous) shark teeth from Annopol, Poland

Taxonomy and biostratigraphy of the elasmobranchs and bony fishes (Chondrichthyes and Osteichthyes) of the lower-to-middle Eocene (Ypresian to Bartonian) Claiborne Group in Alabama, USA, including an analysis of otoliths

The Tallahatta Formation, Lisbon Formation, and Gosport Sand are the three lithostratigraphic units that make up the lower-to-middle Eocene Claiborne Group. In Alabama, these marine units are among

A fossil assemblage from the mid–late Maastrichtian of Gavdos Island, Greece, provides insights into the pre-extinction pelagic ichthyofaunas of the Tethys

The global body-fossil record of marine ‘fishes’ from the time interval immediately preceding the Cretaceous–Paleogene Extinction is markedly poor. This deficiency appears to be further exacerbated



Deep-Water Chondrichthyans from the Early Miocene of the Vienna Basin (Central Paratethys, Slovakia)

Sampling of latest Burdigalian silty clays from the Malé Karpaty Mountains in the Slovakia revealed a deep-water, low diversity shark fauna, dominated by teeth of very small squaliform sharks, suggesting a post-early Miocene faunal turnover within this clade, at least locally.

Evidence for ammonite survival into the Danian (Paleogene) from the Cerithium Limestone at Stevns Klint, Denmark.

Two ammonite species, Baculites vertebralis and Hoploscaphites constrictus, are recorded from the Cerithium Limestone (lower Danian, Paleogene) at Stevns Klint, Denmark. Most of the specimens

Abstract Field work conducted in the northeastern Aral Sea Region, southwestern Kazakhstan has produced a large number of vertebrates from late Cretaceous and early Tertiary sediments. Included among

A Rare Danian (Early Paleocene) Chlamydoselachus (Chondrichthyes: Elasmobranchii) From the Takatika Grit, Chatham Islands, New Zealand

The presence of the chlamydoselachians in the shallow marine Takatika Grit indicates that early in its evolutionary history the group may have inhabited shallow neritic environments and their teeth were more robust, possibly a reflection of the sharks predatory lifestyle.

Planktonic foraminiferids, biostratigraphy and the diachronous nature of the lowermost Danian Cerithium Limestone at Stevns Klint, Denmark.

New material comprising more than four thousand specimens of planktonic foraminifers from the lowermost Danian Cerithium Limestone at Stevns Klint, Denmark, reveal significant lateral

Marine Vertebrates from the ‘Middle’ Cretaceous (Early Cenomanian) of South India

ABSTRACT Vertebrate fossils have been known from South India's Cauvery Basin since the 1840s, but records of marine vertebrates from the late Albian to Turonian Karai Formation have been limited to

New sharks and rays from the Cenomanian and Turonian of Charentes, France

New or so far poorly known neoselachians from the Cenomanian and Turonian of SW France are described, helping to prove knowledge of mid−Cretaceous selachian faunas from Western Europe.
