Kier, Porter M. Oligocene Echinoids from North Carolina. Smithsonian Contributions to Paleobiology, number 83, 37 pages, 6 figures, 11 plates, 2 tables, 1997.—Oligocene echinoids are rare, which makes important this material from three quarries in North Carolina. Three species occur in the state quarry at Pollocksville: Psammechinus carolinensis, new species, Maretia carolinensis, new species, and Agassizia sp. At the New Bern quarry occur Rhyncholampas gouldii (Bouve) newbernensis, new…

Abstract Fourteen species of echinoids ranging in age from early to late Eocene, including four new species, are described from Texas. New taxa include Schizaster (Schizaster) caddoensis from the
Eocene echinoids of Texas
Fourteen species of echinoids ranging in age from early to late Eocene, including four new species, are described from Texas. New taxa include Schizaster (Schizaster) caddoensis from the Reklaw and
Late Oligocene Sharks and Rays from the Chandler Bridge Formation, Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
A diverse vertebrate fauna, dominated by elasmobranch taxa, was collected from the upper Oligocene (Chattian) Chandler Bridge Formation in Summerville, Dorchester County, South Carolina. Nearly 3,500
Systematic notes on Burdigalian Echinoids from the Qom Formation in the Bagher Abad area, Central Iran
Echinoids fauna are common and distributed in the Lower Miocene deposits of the Bagher Abad area, northeast Isfahan, Central Iran.There are six Echinoid taxa belonging to the Echinoidea Class that
Hemipatagus, a misinterpreted Loveniid (Echinodermata: Echinoidea)
Cladistic analysis shows that Hemipatagus is not close to Maretia, but is closely related to Lovenia and should be placed in the Loveniidae, which is here confirmed as a monophyletic group.
Note on the Genus maretia gray, 1855 and Description of Maretia planulata (Lamarck, 1816) (Echinoidea, Spatangoida), off Thoothukudi Coast of Gulf of Mannar, India (08º 35’ 22.5” N 78º 27’ 40.9 E) – (310 M)
Heart sea-urchin was collected from Thoothukudi coast of Gulf of Mannar, Southeast coast of India and is newly recorded in two distinct Indo-Pacific marine zones.

Abstract Tertiary Crassostrea oysters grew large and thick shells, whereas their descendants, living Crassostrea, grow comparatively smaller and thinner shells. To test for ecological differences
New records of the dolphin Albertocetus meffordorum (Odontoceti: Xenorophidae) from the lower Oligocene of South Carolina: Encephalization, sensory anatomy, postcranial morphology, and ontogeny of early odontocetes
Five new specimens of xenorophid dolphins from North and South Carolina are reported, extending the temporal range of Albertocetus meffordorum into the early Oligocene, its geographic range into South Carolina, and expand the paleobiological understanding of the Xenorophidae.
First Record of a New Species of Amblypygus (Echinoidea) from the Middle Miocene of Mersa Matruh, Western Desert, Egypt
A morphological comparison between the two genera Amblypygus and Echinoneus shows that they differ in that AmblyPygus has a semi-ethmolytic apical disc and crenulate, perforate tubercles whereas Echin oneus has an ethmophract apicalDisc and non-crenulate.
