Abstract Nuculid bivalves of the Cape Melville Formation (Early Miocene, King George Island) are reviewed. Ten bivalve taxa are listed from the formation in the families Nuculidae (two species), Sareptidae, Malletiidae, Limopsidae (two species), Limidae, Pectinidae, Hiatellidae, and Periplomatidae. The Nuculidae consist of two species of Leionucula Quenstedt, 1930. One of these, L. melvilleana n. sp., is described and the other consists of the two species named previously by Anelli et al. (2006… 
Early Jurassic protobranch bivalves from Chubut, Argentina
Abstract Knowledge on Early Jurassic marine fossil invertebrates from Argentina is very uneven. Particularly, faunas from Chubut Province received less attention and were thought to be poorer than
The Early Miocene Cape Melville Formation fossil assemblage and the evolution of modern Antarctic marine communities
The fossil community from the Early Miocene Cape Melville Formation does not show the archaic retrograde nature of modern Antarctic marine communities, despite evidence, such as the presence of dropstones, diamictites and striated rocks, that it was deposited in a glacial environment.


Early Miocene bivalves from the Cape Melville Formation, King George Island, West Antarctica
Seven species of marine bivalves, including six new taxa, are described from the Cape early Miocene Melville Formation which crops out on the Melville Peninsula, King George Island, West Antarctica.
The fossil record of Limopsis (Bivalvia: Limopsidae) in Antarctica and the southern high latitudes
Fossil evidence shows that the Limopsis genus underwent a second, Cenozoic, radiation related to the isolation of Antarctica and the onset of cooling in the southern hemisphere.

A new aspidostomatid bryozoan from the Cape Melville Formation (Lower Miocene) of King George Island, West Antarctica
Investigation of the morphological characters of this aspidostomatid cheilostome shows that it represents a new species, which is described herein as Aspidostoma melvillensis sp.
Evolution of the deep sea protobranch bivalves
The number of protobranch species of the continental shelves of the world comprise between 10 and 15 % of the total number of bivalve species present. This is in contrast to the bivalve fauna of the

Iheringinucula, a new genus of the family Nuculidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia) from the Tertiary of Patagonia (Argentina)
A new Tertiary genus of the family Nuculidae, Iheringinucula, is proposed, known only from the Patagonian region (Argentina), and its range is from the late Eocene to the early Miocene.
In the Isla Grande of Tierra del Fuego, a conglomeradic sandstone contains many bivalves, gastropods and few foraminifers, corals, brachiopods and palynomorphs; the characteristies and specific relationships point an age between the Eocene and early Eocene.
