About twelve years ago the Woodwardian Museum acquired from Mr. W. Farren a series of some 25 associated and successive caudal vertebræ, found at one of the deeper phosphatite washings on Coldham Common, Barnwell. At the same date, the Rev. W. Stokes Shaw, M.A., Caius College, obtained from a similar working at Barton, a locality a few miles westward, another associated series of 15 smaller vertebræ showing identical characters, and of such size as to exactly join on to the first series and…

At least two titanosaurian sauropod taxa have been discovered in the Early Cretaceous Dinosaur Beds of northern Malawi, Africa. One of these, Malawisaurus dixeyi, is represented by cranial elements,
A Sauropod Tooth from the Santonian of Hungary and the European Late Cretaceous ‘Sauropod Hiatus’
A single tooth from the Santonian continental beds of Iharkút, Hungary is described that represents the first European body fossil evidence of a sauropod from this critical time interval and points to a basal titanosauriform affinity suggesting the occurrence of a clade of sauropods in the Upper Cretaceous of Europe that is quite different from the previously known Campano-Maastrichtian titanosaurs.
Osteology of the Late Jurassic Portuguese sauropod dinosaur Lusotitan atalaiensis (Macronaria) and the evolutionary history of basal titanosauriforms
The results support the generic separation of the contemporaneous taxa Brachiosaurus, Giraffatitan, and Lusotitan, with the latter recovered as either a brachiosaurid or the sister taxon to Titanosauriformes.
Anatomy of the basal titanosaur (Dinosauria, Sauropoda) Andesaurus delgadoi from the mid-Cretaceous (Albian–early Cenomanian) Río Limay Formation, Neuquén Province, Argentina: implications for titanosaur systematics
The holotype of Andesaurus delgadoi is re-describe, comprising dorsal, sacral, and caudal vertebrae, as well as limb and pelvic elements, and putative titanosaur synapomorphies are recognized.
An overview of the pterosaur assemblage from the Cambridge Greensand (Cretaceous) of Eastern England
The Cambridge Greensand pterosaur assemblage is similar to a slightly younger, but much smaller assemblages from the Lower Chalk of England and shares some elements, such as ornithocheirids, in common with many other late Early and early Late Cretaceous assemblelages.
Archosaurian reptiles with Gondwanan affinities in the Upper Cretaceous of Europe
The Late Cretaceous (mainly Campanian and Maastrichtian) non-marine vertebrate faunas of Europe contain archosaurian reptiles which belong to groups otherwise known mainly or only from the southern
I.—Eminent Living Geologists
In presenting to our readers a brief notice of the life and work of Professor Seeley, one of the most eminent of Vertebrate Palæontologists, we feel that we are offering but a scant tribute to one
