Palaeoenvironment and taphonomy of a Late Jurassic (Late Tithonian) Lagerstätte from central Poland

A rich assemblage of exceptionally preserved marine and terrestrial fossils occurs in fine-grained limestones in the upper part of the Late Tithonian (Middle Volgian) shallowing upward carbonate sequence in Central Poland. The richest horizon, a deposit known locally as the Corbulomima horizon, is named after the shallow burrowing suspension feeding bivalve Corbulomima obscura, moulds of which occur in densities of up to 500 per square metre on some bedding planes. The fauna in this bed also…

Depositional environment of the Owadów-Brzezinki conservation Lagerstätte (uppermost Jurassic, central Poland): evidence from microfacies analysis, microfossils and geochemical proxies

The Owadów-Brzezinki quarry is one of the most important paleontological sites in Poland, known for its exceptionally well-preserved Upper Jurassic (Middle Volgian = uppermost Lower Tithonian)

A new pancryptodiran turtle from the Late Jurassic of Poland and palaeobiology of early marine turtles

A new pancryptodiran turtle genus and species, Owadowia borsukbialynickae, is described from the uppermost Jurassic (Tithonian, ca. 148 Ma) carbonate sediments of the Kcynia Formation in Owadow-Brzezinki Quarry, near Tomaszow Mazowiecki in central Poland and it is proposed that the new specimen belongs to a new durophagous pancrypto-turtle taxon.

The ‘Polish Solnhofen’: a long‐awaited alternative?

Here we briefly report on the discovery of a new Fossil‐Lagerstätte locality, Owadów‐Brzezinki quarry (central Poland), which exposes Late Jurassic (Late Tithonian) carbonate sediments with an

Diversity Patterns of Late Jurassic Chondrichthyans: New Insights from a Historically Collected Hybodontiform Tooth Assemblage from Poland

Here, we provide a detailed taxonomic reassessment of a historically collected chondrichthyan dental assemblage from the lower Kimmeridgian of Czarnogłowy in north-western Poland and discuss its


ABSTRACT: High resolution oxygen isotopes profiles of well-preserved uppermost Jurassic oyster shells and vertebrate (ichthyosaur and fish) teeth from Central Poland were obtained using a microdrill

The giant pliosaurid that wasn’t: revising the marine reptiles from the Kimmeridgian (Upper Jurassic) of Krzyżanowice, Poland

Marine reptiles from the Upper Jurassic of Central Europe are rare and often fragmentary, which hinders their precise taxonomic identification and their placement in a palaeobiogeographic context.

The Horseshoe Crab of the Genus Limulus: Living Fossil or Stabilomorph?

It is shown that there are no important morphological differences between the Kcynia Formation specimens and extant juvenile representatives of the genus Limulus, and the adoption of a new term stabilomorphism is proposed.

The first record of an invertebrate trackway from the lithographic limestones of the Can-juers Lagerstatte is described here. The preserved part of the trackway is approximately39 cm long and 17cm



Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous black shale formation and paleoenvironment in high northern latitudes: Examples from the Norwegian‐Greenland Seaway

[1] The Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous (Volgian-Ryazanian) was a period of a second-order sea-level low stand, and it provided excellent conditions for the formation of shallow marine black shales

Diagenesis of plattenkalk: examples from the Solnhofen area (Upper Jurassic, southern Germany)

The Upper Jurassic (Tithonian) plattenkalk successions in the Solnhofen/Eichstätt area consist of alternations of thin‐bedded, laminated, fine‐grained, very pure limestones (so‐called ‘flinz beds’)

Ammonite- and bivalve-based biostratigraphy and Panboreal correlation of the Volgian Stage

The current ammonite- and buchiid-based biostratigraphical successions of the Volgian Stage are outlined, with an analysis of the most important data that support correlation throughout the Panboreal
